Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens

15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens from Canon

The EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens from Canon is a very versatile zoom lens with a 35mm focal length equivalence of 24-136mm optimized for APS-C format DSLR cameras. Measuring just 3.5" in length and weighing about 1.25 lb, the lens boasts a convenient wide angle to telephoto focal length in an easy to carry form factor.

Aspherical and UD-glass lens elements minimize aberrations and contribute to the lens' impressive imaging quality throughout its zoom range. Optical Image Stabilization provides the equivalent effect of four shutter speed stops for clear imaging in low light situations. An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) brings with it fast, smooth and quiet AF action, which is crucial when shooting HD video and manual focus override allows manual focus precision even in AF mode.

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, the IS function 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 a textured exterior 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 treated with Canon’s Super Spectra lens coating which suppresses flare and prevents ghosting – which is more likely 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 hi-fidelity 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.
