Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Sample Pictures Published



Blogging from Dubai International Airport while waiting for my connection :-)

Canon China published a set of sample pics shot with Canon’s new ultra wide angle lens for APS-C cameras, the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM ($299, pre-order at B&H Photo | Adorama). The EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM was announced on 5/13.

This lens has an amazingly good price, and – it may sound weird – it comes with a lens hood even if it is not an “L” lens.

Canon Watch On The Road (again)

Hi all!

I am currently travelling to India, so thanks for understanding that posts may be a bit chaotic and/or delayed in the next days, or at least until I get mobile connectivity in India.

This will be a 3 months trips ending in Bangkok. In my baggage I have the Canon EOS 70D, the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8, the EF-S 18-135mm IS STM (good all-round lens), the EOS M with the 11-22mm IS STM and the 22mm f/2 STM lenses.

Stay tuned for a travel review of both the EOS 70D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 – these 2 pieces of gear together make up a killer kit.

Have a nice day wherever you are! :-)

  • 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer.
