Here is a Canon RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM review. This is one of the less expensive lenses for the RF mount.
At a glance:
- RF-S-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
- 29-240mm (35mm Equivalent)
- Aperture Range: f/3.5-6.3 to f/40
- One UD Element & Two Aspherical Elements
- Super Spectra Coating
- STM Stepping AF Motor
- Optical Image Stabilizer
- Customizable Control Ring
- Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm
The effective 4.5-stop optical image stabilisation system makes this lens more versatile in low-light situations, allowing you to hand-hold the camera in situations where you can’t use a tripod or similar support. This is especially important on the EOS R10 which doesn’t have IBIS.
We did miss having built-in weather-proofing, though, which would offer some peace of mind in the more inclement conditions that this lens may be subjected to, and it would have been nice to see the optional lens hood and bag included in the box.
Auto-focusing proved to be quick, quiet and reliable on the Canon EOS R7 camera body that we tested the lens with thanks to the STM motor, while manual focus over-ride at any time is a great feature, and we didn’t miss having a dedicated AF/MF button on the lens barrel because both the R7 and R10 have one.Read the review at Photography Blog…
Canon RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM:
Cover all your needs with one lightweight optic with the Canon RF-S 18-150mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens. Designed to be an all-around lens for Canon’s APS-C R Series mirrorless cameras, it will offer an equivalent zoom range of 29-240mm which covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. The 18-150mm uses an UD elements along with two aspherical elements to create aberration-free imagery. A Super Spectra Coating further helps by minimizing ghosting and flaring.
Users will be able to make use of a customizable Control Ring for either manual focus or a programmable setting. Autofocus is smooth and quiet, great for stills and video, thanks to a lead screw-type STM stepping AF motor. Additionally, the lens has an Optical Image Stabilizer that will compensate for up to 4.5 stops of camera shake, or up to 6.5 stops with Coordinated IS when paired with a compatible camera.
