The Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens (Silver) is a compact, stylish zoom lens for EOS M series digital cameras. A special retraction mechanism shortens the length of the lens to just 1.76 inches (44.5mm) when the camera is off, to help make carrying and storing the lens and camera even easier. The quiet stepping motor (STM) design helps ensure low-noise focusing that’s ideal for recording movies. The 35mm-equivalent 24–72mm range combines a wide angle for landscapes and big group photos, with a telephoto zoom for close-ups and detailed headshots. Carefully designed lens placement and special Canon coatings help keep ghosting and other lens flare from your images. The integral image stabilization (up to 3.5 stops faster) can help capture sharp images, even in low light and while taking panoramas.FEATURES: Compact and stylish standard zoom lens with image stabilization for EOS M series digital cameras.A stepping motor (lead screw-type STM) helps provide smooth and quiet operation when taking photos, and near-silence when shooting videos.High-speed, high-precision autofocusing is achieved by utilizing the full-time manual focus mode (AF+MF) to make fine adjustments after focusing.Optical Image Stabilizer technology helps reduce camera shake, and achieves a level of sharpness equivalent to a shutter speed 3.5 settings faster for great performance even when using for handheld photography.Efficiently designed with three aspheric lenses and uses short back focus to help produce high-quality results.Lens retraction mechanism helps shorten the length of the lens and a compact, lightweight design allows easy portability.Optimized lens placement helps to minimize ghosting and flare.
