About Canon 10-18mm

CANON EF-S 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 IS STM LENS

Wide-angle. Zooming. Powerful autofocus. Sophisticated aperture. What else could you want in a lens? The CANON EF-S 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 IS STM LENS offers just about everything a creative photographer worth their salt can hope for, including:

Product Highlights

  • A large-diameter element and aspherical lens element that corrects aberrations on its way to high image quality and consistency in every Canon 10-18mm lens shot.
  • An Optical Image Stabilizer that reduces any “shakiness” present in your photographs and restores each picture to its full potential. The lens coatings also help to minimize ghosting and flaring.
  • A high-powered CPU ensures quality autofocusing that’s on par with anything you can expect to use on the market.

Acquire a Canon 10-18mm lens of your very own to see all that an ultra-wide angle lens can capture.


Learn about the CANON EF-S 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 IS STM LENS

Even the most grizzled of photography professionals know: sometimes, zooming out just doesn’t cut it: you need a lens with an ultra-wide angle to capture the whole scene. But in order to facilitate a wide angle that doesn’t look like a gimmick but instead produces a stunning, beautiful image, you need a lens capable of living up to your imagination. Well, we at Adorama think we have it. Enter the CANON EF-S 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 IS STM LENS, a lens with the capacity to serve up wide-angle shots that capture entire moments without ever resorting to looking goofy or cartoonish. In fact, just the opposite is true: the optical excellence and high-standard performance allow you to create a wide variety of artful photographs with stunning image quality and consistency.

  • Let’s talk about image quality. The Canon 10-18mm lens has it, offering high-contrast and high-resolution shots at a moment’s notice, even while minimizing the potential for glare and color aberration. How? Well, the circular 7-blad aperture will help ensure that you achieve a fine background blur, but the Canon Optical Image Stabilizer System is something to behold, offering up to four equivalent stops of shake correction. The end result is a stunning consistency in imaging that allows you to take a whole gamut of photographs without ever sacrificing quality. Heck, you might just take a few beautiful photos by mistake.
  • Let’s talk about motors, too. Specifically, a stepping motor (STM) that works in conjunction with a refined focus mechanism, achieving the smooth, continuous autofocus that you need even while recording live video. That makes the Canon 10-18mm lens ideally suited to handle just about anything you can dish at it, from fast-moving live video action to quick-needed still photographs. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the rear focusing system and high speed CPU help ensure that the autofocus is always on its best behavior.
  • What about field of view? We’re talking big angles here, up to 107, which means you’ll create realistic images of wide-ranging scenes with regularity. Yes, the Canon 10-18mm lens is designed exactly for this purpose, but you’ll be stunned at just how accurate these pictures end up, particularly when you photograph everything from landscapes to live events—even those events in low or dim lighting. And the ultra-wide lens also zooms with an impressive starting focal length of 16mm in 35mm equivalence, which means that you’ll be hard-pressed to find a lens at Adorama that performs quite like this Canon lens.
  • Capture plenty of low light with the aforementioned aperture. The large-diameter element and aspherical lens elements help to achieve the kind of image quality you need in low-light settings, as well, giving you the freedom to work at night, in the morning, in the evening—heck, if there’s light out there, this lens can grab it.
  • Want manual focus? Of course you do; you’re a pro. There’s manual focus adjustment available even while in autofocus mode, giving you the creative freedom to utilize all 107 degrees of this lens’ field of view.

A wide-angle lens is not something to scoff at; in fact, it can be one of the most powerful tools you have as a photographer. With a lens like CANON EF-S 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 IS STM LENS in your arsenal, that’s sure to be the case.

I don't use a super wide that often, but I do a lot of Real Estate photography and sometimes need to shoot close up, so need to go wide. Just had this a couple weeks, but so far and very happy with the results.

Completes my lens array


from Arlington Heights,Illinois  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this lens to complete my lens array. I was missing a good wide angle lens below 18mm. This is quite a nice lens for me. Sure you could spend a lot more,but this does the job.Great for small interiors.The only thing that was unusual, at first, is the manual focus. You must first press your shutter halfway to activate the manual focus. You have to get used to it, but not a problem. The only other thing is it is not compatable with older Kenko extension tubes. But I don't know why you would want to use an extension tube on a super-wide angle lens anyway. Your subject would have to be about 2 inches from the lens. A great lens for the price.

Loving this lens


from New Mexico

Let me put it this way. This is a lot nicer lens than its relatively low cost would suggest! I had been in the market for a good Ultra wide for my 7D crop sensor camera. I have several other really nice Canon lenses, including a couple of nice "L" lenses. I wanted a Ultra Wide to have in my bag for those occasions that beg for such a lens (like interior shots of old buildings, nice wide landscapes, etc. I didn't intend for it to be something that lives on my camera, but something I could pop on when the situation warrants. I had been looking at the Tokina 11-16mm and the Sigma 8-16mm. The reviews for both of these lenses, in general, were very good and certainly better than the Canon 10-22mm lens. Both had lots of good points in their favor. I was close to pulling the trigger on one of these two, when Canon came out with this gem! I waited until there were some actual hand-on reviews and when I saw the rave reviews this lens was getting, and considering in is about half the price of the other two, it was a no brainer. Yes, the lens is plastic and not "L" lens build quality, but it certainly doesn't feel "cheap." But most important to me is, the IQ on this thing is much better than I'd have expected for a lens this affordable! It is tack sharp and has very little vignetting or barrel distortion (if you hold it parallel to the ground). My prediction: This will become Canon's most indispensable and popular "must have" lens since the "nifty fifty" 50mm f1.8!

Great super wideangle!


from Enon Ohio

Exactly what you'd expect from Canon. Great numbers for the money. The anti-vibration feature makes these relatively slow and inexpensive lenses a must. Fills the gap in my focal lengths below 18mm.

Finally, An Affordable Wide Angle Lens


from Storrs, CT

This is the not often used lens that augments my 10 - 200mm travel lens. I could not justify spending nearly double or more for a wide angle lens that may be marginally better, but weighs in at double or more. This is the wide angle I've waited for. The great things are the price, low weight, compactness, image stability, and decent image quality (enthusiast level, not pro). Not so great is the vignette that occurs in the corners at the low end of the zoom range when normal thickness filters are used. Slim filters must be used. I'm guessing that after market hoods must be carefully selected to avoid vignettes also. The Canon EW-73C hood works fine as it should. Canon seems to not have a compensation update for this lens yet. It is a feature that hopefully will be available soon. A lower f-stop (like f-4.0) would be nice, but at the price of this lens, f-4.5 is okay.

Explore Ultra Wide Angle Photography


from Hartford, CT

Great value! I am using this to explore using ultra-wide angle photography (e.g. landscapes). It is small and easy to carry. Lens has nice sharpness, and good functionality. For slower shutter speeds, I appreciate the IS capability. For those interested in Astro-Photography, you might prefer a faster (wider aperature) alternative.
