    High performance, compact lens for outstanding photos and movies
    A go-to lens for photos and movies, the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM has shoot-specific, dedicated IS modes, ensuring you achieve steady results. Nano USM technology delivers fast focusing that is smooth and quiet for moviemaking.

    Its compact, lightweight design makes it a lens perfect for travelling without compromising on quality, giving you excellent colour and contrast reproduction. The UD and aspherical lens elements reduce chromatic aberration throughout its expansive focal range for both movies and photos.

    Nano USM technology - smooth, fast and quiet
    The Nano USM technology in the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM allows you to focus on your subject with exceptional speed. Combined with a versatile focal range, it allows you to capture dramatic landscapes, beautiful portraits and fast-paced action.

    Professional quality movies made easy
    Nano USM focusing technology provides a natural look to your movies, with exceptionally smooth autofocus when tracking subjects. However, you can also take control at any time with its responsive manual focus ring.

    Silent focusing
    Nano USM ensures that your soundtrack is uninterrupted by focusing noise thanks to its near silent motion.

    Speed of focus
    The drive speed of the focusing lens in the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM has been increased by up to 2.5 times (wide) and by up to 4.3 times (telephoto) compared to the EF-S18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS.

    Smooth focusing
    Smooth focus is a must for natural looking focus transitions.

    Nano USM gives superb control, allowing for smooth tracking, while focusing on your subject as it moves away or towards the camera.

    Stay steady amongst the action
    Shooting pin-sharp photographs is made easy with the 4-stop Optical Image Stabilizer. It counteracts camera shake for high quality results in low light or when using zoom, while a dedicated Panning Mode automatically engages when you are following a moving subject.

    The Dynamic Image Stabilizer ensures movie footage is stable when shooting handheld, at full zoom or on the move.

    Incredible versatility across the focal range
    The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM comfortably captures a range of subjects due to its wide focal range. At its shortest focal length, you can capture expanses of landscapes. At the opposite end, you can get closer to action with its telephoto capabilities and high speed autofocus. The 4-stop Optical Image Stabilizer keeps your images sharp and steady when at maximum zoom, working in low light or shooting video
