Helping to pave the way for our RF-S lens line, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM is an all-around lens that is ideal for creative photography and movies, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM combines legendary Canon Optics with a versatile zoom range and quiet operation for flexibility on the go.
This lens was designed with smaller APS-C sensors in mind, and when attached onto a full frame EOS R camera, automatically enables the 1.6x crop mode. It offers 100% x 100% Dual Pixel CMOS AF coverage for APS-C sensors, and 80% x 80% Dual Pixel CMOS AF coverage for Full Frame sensors (in crop mode). Delivering remarkable performance for everyday use, the lead screw-type stepping motor (STM) helps ensure smooth autofocus and quiet operation, letting you capture videos with great audio and minimal background noise so you won't distract your subject in a quiet photo environment. Optical Image Stabilization provides up to 4.5 stops of correction, and up to 6.5 stops with Coordinated IS. This advanced image stabilization can result in sharper photos with minimal blur, even in low light situations. For landscapes, portraits, sports, videos and everything in between, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM provides great versatility with its magnificent optics, comprehensive zoom range and flexible design.
The RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM packs a powerful zoom range and a bright maximum aperture into a well-balanced lens that was designed with APS-C sensors in mind.
Excellent image quality with two Aspheric elements and Canon Super Spectra Coating
The two aspheric elements help reduce chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range for excellent image quality with high resolution and contrast, and the Canon Super Spectra Coating helps ensure outstanding color balance while minimizing ghosting
Lead Screw-type STM
Canon's stepping motor (STM) technology is especially effective at producing smooth, quiet autofocus during video recording. This lens is a perfect choice for multi-media content creation, with its zoom range and quiet autofocus. And, STM focus drive provides responsive, quick - and exceptionally quiet - AF during still-image shooting, as well.
Image Stabilization with up to 4.5 Stops* of Shake Correction
For consistently sharp results, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM features built-in optical Image Stabilization, providing enhanced shake reduction for up to 4.5 stops* of shake correction. When paired with an EOS R-series camera that has In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), the Coordinated IS allows for up to 6.5 stops of correction. This means more reliable handheld performance and clearer detail in low-light situations, without having to increase the ISO or decrease the shutter speed. Because of its enhanced stabilization, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM can also help minimize the need for a tripod.
