Improved zooming action makes this compact zoom lens particularly attractive. Fully compatible with all EOS cameras, including the popular Rebel and Elan series, the lens is at its best with the new EOS IX Lite. When used on this APS SLR, the effective angle of view is equivalent to that of a 28-69mm on a 35mm camera. That makes it the ideal choice for a wide range of shooting situations. Use it for group shots, scenery, travel, portraits, close-ups, etc. Image quality is excellent, thanks in part to an advanced aspherical lens element, and the compact Micro USM (Ultrasonic Motor) drive delivers precise, silent, high-speed autofocusing.
