Discover the Canon RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens
The Canon RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM lens is a feat of optical engineering that seamlessly marries exceptional performance with portability. Designed to cater to EOS R cameras equipped with APS-C sensors, this lens's optical prowess is the result of a revolutionary design featuring two Ultra-low Dispersion glass elements and an Aspheric element. The RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM delivers dependable, swift, and near-silent wide-angle performance, making it an ideal companion for vlogging, videography, travel photography, landscapes, interiors, and creative imaging.
Embrace the Ultra-wide-angle Experience
The RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM lens offers expansive coverage, starting at 18mm and widening to a true ultra-wide perspective at 10mm (16-29mm equivalent). This ultra-wide angle is perfect for capturing shots in tight spaces where backing up is not an option, such as within vehicles or small rooms. It's also an excellent choice for landscape photography, travel adventures, and more.
Wide-angle Versatility for Selfies and Vlogs
With its broad angle of view, indoor shooting becomes a breeze. The lens's compact and lightweight design ensures comfort while filming on the go, enabling you to capture selfies and vlogs effortlessly from any location.
Exceptional Image Quality
The RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM boasts a novel lens design optimized for a short back focus. It incorporates two Ultra-Low Dispersion glass elements and an Aspheric element to guarantee top-notch image quality across the entire frame, from the center to the edges. Even at its widest zoom setting, both optical and digital corrections work harmoniously to reduce the risk of edge darkening or distortion of straight lines in your shots.
Get Closer to Your Subjects
This lens empowers you to capture subjects in intricate detail with a maximum magnification of 0.23x in AF mode (focusing as close as 5.5 inches) and 0.5x in MF mode. This feature allows you to create expressive close-up shots while enjoying the bokeh effect characteristic of an ultra-wide-angle lens.
Optical Image Stabilization — Up to 4.0 stops of Shake Correction
For sharp, blur-free shots even without a tripod, the RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM incorporates built-in Optical Image Stabilization, providing up to 4.0 stops of shake reduction, even in challenging lighting conditions. When used with an EOS R-series camera featuring In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), the Coordinated IS system extends the correction to an impressive 6.0 stops. This feature simplifies handheld video recording, travel photography, and everyday shooting, reducing the need for additional equipment.
Swift, Silent, and Precise Autofocus
The lens employs a leadscrew-type STM focus drive system, ensuring smoother and more natural autofocus for video recording. This is particularly beneficial for videographers due to its quiet operation and exceptional focus smoothness during video shoots. It also supports focus breathing correction, digitally compensating for changes in the angle of view caused by focus adjustments during video recording.
Compact and Featherweight Design
With a weight of approximately 5.3 ounces (150g), the RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM is remarkably lightweight and compact. It features a lens-retraction mechanism that operates effortlessly, allowing you to store it compactly by simply turning the zoom ring, ensuring unrivaled portability.
