This lens is ideally designed for comfortable framing and capture of most
subjects encountered in daily life and the Optical SteadyShot™ image
stabilization makes handheld shooting in low light possible.
The 18–55mm zoom range, corresponding to 27–82.5mm on a 35mm full-frame
format camera, is ideally designed for comfortable framing and capture of most
subjects encountered in daily life or on vacation, and a built-in Optical
SteadyShot image stabilization system makes it possible to produce sharp images
even when shooting handheld in low light. The OSS system is so effective that
you'll be able to capture blur-free images at shutter speeds up to four steps
slower than would be possible without image stabilization.
With 3x optical zoom and high-quality metal
exterior, this lens is designed to be flexible and portable at only 7oz. (194g).
The 18-55mm focal length corresponds to a
27-82.5mm focal range when used on the APS-C cameras it's designed for,
providing a comfortable range for everyday shooting.
