As part of our new RF-S lens line, the RF-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM gives you the flexibility you desire without taking up your whole camera bag. This lens was designed with smaller APS-C sensors in mind, and when attached to 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). The small size of the RF-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM and clever lens retraction mechanism lets it fit just about anywhere, making it a great lens to bring with you on a walk or wherever the day takes you. 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 stops of correction, and up to 6 stops with Coordinated IS. This advanced image stabilization can result in sharper photos with minimal blur, even in low light situations. When you add all of this together, you get a wonderful, lightweight, and versatile lens that is designed to fit into your life.
Compact-size, Standard Zoom Lens for everyday use
High performance in a small, lightweight package, the RF-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM puts a versatile zoom range (35mm equivalent — 29–72mm coverage) into a compact package that's easy to carry. Its optical system and clever lens retraction mechanism are designed to help ensure high image quality, while keeping the lens compact and easily portable so it stays out of the way and is ready when you are. Bring the RF-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM and your camera with you in your daypack or camera bag so you can capture life's constant action on a walk, vacation or in your own backyard.
Lead Screw-type STM
When it comes to recording video, you want to be sure you capture all the subtle sounds of what you're recording. Thanks to its lead screw-type stepping motor (STM), the RF-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM focuses smoothly and quietly, letting you concentrate on the dialogue, music or other important sounds you want to capture.
Image Stabilization at up to 4 Stops of Shake Correction
For consistently sharp results, the RF-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM features an improved Image Stabilizer system that provides enhanced shake reduction for up to 4 stops* of shake correction. When paired with an EOS R camera that has In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), the Coordinated IS allows for up to 6 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-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM can also help minimize the need for a tripod.
Two Aspherical Elements and Canon Super Spectra Coating
Taking advantage of the RF lens mount, the RF-S18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM lens offers great optical quality. Highlights include two aspheric elements for high image quality from center to corner and Canon Super Spectra Coating to minimize ghosting and flare.
