Helping to pave the way for our RF-S lens line, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM is an all-around lens that is ideal for creative photography and movies, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM combines legendary Canon Optics with a versatile zoom range and quiet operation for flexibility on the go. This lens was designed with smaller APS-C sensors in mind, and when connected 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). Delivering remarkable performance for everyday use, 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 4.5 stops of correction, and up to 6.5 stops with Coordinated IS. This advanced image stabilization can result in sharper photos with minimal blur, even in low light situations. For landscapes, portraits, sports, videos and everything in between, the RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM provides great versatility with its magnificent optics, comprehensive zoom range and flexible design.
The RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM packs a powerful zoom range and a bright maximum aperture into a well-balanced lens that was designed with APS-C sensors in mind
In-Body Image Stabilizer for shake correction
Equipped with a quiet stepping motor which helps provide smooth autofocusing when shooting videos
High-magnification zoom lens
This lens provides automatic APS-C sensor cropping if mounted on full-frame EOS R-series cameras. The RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM packs a powerful zoom range and a bright maximum aperture into a well-balanced lens that was designed with APS-C sensors in mind.
Excellent image quality
Two Aspheric elements and Canon Super Spectra Coating add to the lens's ability to provide excellent quality stills. Continuing on a tradition of high-quality lens technology, the two aspheric elements help reduce chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range for excellent image quality with high resolution and contrast, and the Canon Super Spectra Coating helps ensure outstanding color balance while minimizing ghosting and flare.
In-lens optical image stabilization with up to 4.5 stops of shake correction. Up to 6.5 stops of shake correction when paired with EOS R series cameras featuring In-Body Image Stabilizer (IBIS). You can capture amazingly clear and steady results while shooting handheld photos or videos, even in low-light situations like indoors or night scenes, without having to significantly increase the ISO or grab a tripod, and when combined with an EOS R Series camera with an In-Body Image Stabilizer, you can experience the additional benefits of Coordinated image stabilization for even more shake correction.
Quiet stepping motor
The quiet motor helps provide smooth autofocusing when shooting videos. The RF-S18-150mm F3.5-6.3 IS STM lens uses a gear-type stepping motor to provide smooth and quiet autofocus when shooting both still and video, so focusing appears seamless while following a subject with Servo AF, or Movie Servo AF. Focus racks will have clean transitions when repositioning to another subject, or when focusing from foreground to background.
Wide ranging focus distance
Minimum focus distance of 6.9 inches and allows shooting at a maximum magnification of 0.44x (at 50mm) in AF mode, 0.59x (at 35mm) in MF mode. Capture amazing shots wherever you are and whatever your subject, even at a close distance of 6.9 inches at a maximum magnification of 0.59x, making this not just an ideal lens for everyday casual shooting but for more intricate shots like food, flowers and smaller subjects you really want to show off.
Circular (7 blades) aperture for beautiful, soft backgrounds
You'll have no problem getting that creative, fun and pleasant out-of-focus background blur we all love with the circular 7-blade aperture, so your subject stands out and the background provides a beautiful backdrop that's visually appealing in itself.
