The Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens is designed for Canon EOS DSLRs that have an APS-C format sensor (1.6x crop). The 15-85mm range is a natural substitute for the Canon EF 28-135mm IS lens on the Canon 50D, Canon Rebel T1i and Canon 7D.
High performance flexible wide angle zoom: With an effective focal length range of approximately 24-136mm (35 mm equivalent), the EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a lens that delivers outstanding flexibility while delivering remarkable image quality. With its wider angle than many comparable lenses, it captures more of the scene and adds a greater sense of space and perspective to your photography.
Image Stabilizer: The EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM features Canon’s 4-stop Image Stabilizer (IS). Ideal for handheld work, IS allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower without causing image blur. The Image Stabilizer helps when shooting in low light conditions or from moving vehicles.
Looks as good as it performs: The EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM features Canon’s new exterior design, with a textured finish for a high quality look and feel, that matches your EOS camera.
Ultra fast, ultra quiet auto focus: The ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive responsive, near-silent high speed auto focus.
The ring type USM allows full time manual focus override without having to switch out of AF, for a greater level of usability.
Super Spectra coatings: Lens elements are coated using Canon’s Super Spectra lens coating which suppresses flare and prevents ghosting – which is more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor.
Canon’s Super Spectra coating also helps achieve true colour balance and increase contrast for vivid images.
Creative background blur: A 7 blade circular aperture enables photographers to achieve a beautiful background blur; ideal for isolating your subject from the background.
