Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM In Stock (and a review)

EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Both B&H Photo and Adorama have the new Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM in stock and ready to ship for $299 (Adorama | B&H Photo). Adorama also has the lens with some basic accessories (UV filter, cleaning Kit, cap leash), and still for $299 (click here).

Camerastuffreview reviewed the EF-S 10-18mm IS STM lens and found it to deliver a lot of bang for the money. Very good image quality, light weighted, image stabilisation and a silent stepper motor for AF – and all for a reasonable price. In the conclusion they write:

Canon has surprised many with the introduction of the Canon 10-18 mm. This wide-angle zoom for starting photographers will also appeal to many amateur photographers. It is a perfect complement to the 18-55 mm kit lens: compact, light, equipped with good image stabilization and very attractively priced. Just as with much more expensive wide-angle lenses, there is, especially at the shortest focal length, visible chromatic aberration, vignetting and distortion. These lens properties are easy to correct. At the time of the test, there were no lens profiles available, but after the next update of EOS Utility, Lightroom or Photoshop, that will be easy to correct with software. The image quality – even without lens corrections -  is very good, compared to much more expensive wide angle lenses. The Canon 10-18mm offers a lot of value for money.

The review comes with samples and obviously there is much more for you to read.
