EF-M 18-150mm f/ 3.5-6.3 IS STM Overview
An entire city skyline, captured in one shot. Zoom in to catch even the glass panels on a skyscraper. Your best friend in front of a magnificent canyon, and a close-up of their face.
Capture all of this and more, with just one lens. The new EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM is a high-powered zoom lens for EOS M series cameras that features an incredible zoom ratio of up to 8.3x so you're able to shoot landscapes, close-ups and more with a single lens.
As expected from such a versatile tool, it's correspondingly compact and lightweight so it's easy to take with you for trips or daily snapshots. Whether you're capturing scenery abroad or a picture of your pet at home, the advanced optical design helps provide excellent image quality with virtually every situation and subject. If you want to get extra close, a maximum magnification of 0.31x helps you show off minute details.
With its high zoom range, portable design and beautiful image quality, the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM is perfect for anyone wanting a single lens that can help them step up and capture any moment that comes their way.
Canon's first EF-M high zoom power lens covering a broad range of shooting scenes with a high zoom ratio of up to 8.3x (29–240mm equivalent).
From scenic landscapes to close-up intimate portraits, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM's wide zoom ratio of up to 8.3x can help you capture both of these scenes without changing lenses. The 29mm-equivalent wide angle can help capture the entire mountain range, while the 240mm-equivalent telephoto lets you highlight just one peak.
Compact and lightweight design allows for easy portability.
To bolster its extensive zoom range, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM is compact and lightweight, measuring only 3.4 in. long and 2.4 in. in diameter, and weighing approximately 10.6 oz. It's designed for easy portability, making it an ideal walk-around lens for everyday scenes, vacations and more.
Optical design helps provide excellent image quality across a broad zoom range comparable to the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM lens.
Featuring 17 lens elements in 13 groups, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM's advanced optical design helps ensure high image quality throughout its zoom range, comparable to the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM lens. Optimal element placement, including one UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) lens element and two aspherical lens elements, helps minimize chromatic aberrations and fringing to help keep contrast and colour accuracy high.
Maximum magnification of 0.31x at focal length 150mm.
To help you capture virtually every detail, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM provides a maximum magnification of 0.31x at focal length 150mm. Zoom in and see the texture of a flower's petals, the eyelashes on a friend's face or the whiskers on a cat's nose. The closest focusing distance is 0.82 ft. at 18–50mm or 1.48 ft. at 150mm, meaning you can get right up close to your subject with ease.
Image Stabilizer effect at up to 4* stops of shake correction helps capture sharp images.
For consistently sharp results, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM features an improved Image Stabilizer system that provides significantly enhanced shake reduction for up to 4 stops* of shutter speeds. This means more reliable handheld performance and clearer detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. Because of its enhanced stabilization, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM can also help minimize the need for a tripod.
Combination IS is achieved when used with the EOS M5 digital camera for maximum image stabilization when shooting video.
To help significantly reduce blur in videos due to camera shake, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM features Combination IS when used with the EOS M5 digital camera. This hybrid system augments the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM's mechanical image stabilization with the 5-axis Digital Image Stabilization in the camera itself. This means that if you need to move the camera when recording video, your results can remain sharp and clear.
Panning feature is supported when used with the EOS M5 digital camera by automatically adjusting the panning speed based on the subject's rate of progress.
When used in conjunction with the EOS M5 digital camera, the EF-M 18–150mm f/3.5–6.3 IS STM helps you achieve a smooth panning effect. The camera detects the subject of the photo, then the lens and camera work together to keep accurate focus. The image stabilization system assists by helping to minimize blur due to the camera's movement. Combined, they deliver photos and videos of subjects caught sharply in motion, with the background artistically blurred.
