Fast Auto-Focus Speed

Fast and incredibly quiet, the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM’s new NANO USM AF system not only delivers high-speed AF, but also makes quiet, fast and smooth AF transitions that can be ideal for movie recording. Combining ring USM and STM (lead-screw type) features, the diminutive chip-shaped ultrasonic motor is engineered to help deliver high-speed, smooth, precise and near-silent operation, plus full-time manual focus (when using one-shot AF).

Thanks to its new NANO USM motor, the Canon EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM focuses incredibly fast – a clear advantage for action photography and for working on the fly. Compared to the previous model*, it focuses approximately 4.3 times* faster at the telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. end, and 2.5 times* faster at the wide end when using the viewfinder, for a noticeable speed advantage that can help ensure a stellar photo.

* Based on Canon’s standards. As compared to the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS STM.


Optional Power Zoom accessory

The EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM is compatible with Canon’s new Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 for electronically controlled zooming. This convenient accessory works with the lens to enhance an EOS camera’s video capabilities by providing a smooth and near-silent powered zooming function that’s an ideal complement to the lens’s speedy AF. The PZ-E1 has adjustable zoom speeds, an integrated locking mechanism, offers remote controlled zooming and is designed to integrate seamlessly with the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM for streamlined operability.


Optimal Image Stabilisation up to 4-stops and Dynamic IS for Video Recording

Thanks to a newly enhanced Image Stabiliser system that features a more rigid mechanical structure and the incorporation of faster algorithms, the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM’s Image Stabiliser effect has been improved from 3.5 stops to 4 stops for better performance in even more challenging situations. Whether shooting in low light or any time a slow shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. is necessary, the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM’s Image Stabiliser helps deliver stable, sharp results.

When recording video, the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM’s Dynamic IS system helps compensate for camera shake such as when handholding the camera or making movies while walking, especially when using wide focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. s. By compensating for the camera’s motion, it helps deliver sharp, accurately focused images with ease.


UD Lens element for high resolution and high contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). images

The EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM features a number of advanced Canon optics to provide a sharp, high-resolution picture throughout its zoom range. Featuring a UD lens and a high-precision aspherical lens element, its optical formula helps to reduce chromatic aberrations, flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. and ghosting, reliably delivering excellent results.


Premium Exterior Design

The EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM features a new exterior design that gives it a feel of power and refinement. An elegant shape, comfortable zooming and focus rings, as well as easy-to-read markings, complement its new finish. A metallic mount and a new black ring that separates the zoom and focus rings add to the lens’s feeling of quality.
