  • High speed autofocus


The Canon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Zoom - EF-S Mount lens adds cutting-edge technology to an extremely flexible zoom range. Delivering remarkable performance for everyday capture, this lens is equipped with Canon's new NANO USM technology, featuring high-speed and near-silent autofocus. It is also compatible with Canon's new Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 (sold separately) for more natural zooming during movie capture. For landscapes, portraits, sports, and everything in between, the EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 IS USM provides great versatility with magnificent optics, comprehensive zoom range, and premium design. This lens is an impressive companion to the EOS 80D camera, or any EOS camera with an APS-C size sensor (sold separately).

Equipped with New NANO USM Technology

Fast and incredibly quiet, the NANO USM AF system not only delivers high speed AF, but also makes quiet, fast and smooth AF transitions that can be ideal for movie recording. Combining ring USM and STM (lead-screw type) features, the diminutive chip-shaped ultrasonic motor is engineered to help deliver high-speed, smooth, precise and near-silent operation, plus full time manual focus (when using one-shot AF).

Improved Driving Speed of the Focusing Lens

Thanks to its new NANO USM motor, the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM focuses incredibly fast. This represents a clear advantage for action photography and for working on the fly. Compared to the previous model, it focuses approximately 4.3x* faster at the telephoto end, and 2.5x* faster at the wide end when using the viewfinder, for a noticeable speed advantage that can help ensure a stellar image.

Compatible with New Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1

The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is compatible with Canon's new Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1 (sold separately) for electronically controlled zooming. This convenient accessory works with the lens to enhance an EOS camera's video capabilities by providing a smooth and near-silent powered zooming function that's an ideal complement to the lens's speedy AF. The PZ-E1 has adjustable zoom speeds, an integrated locking mechanism, offers remote controlled zooming and is designed to integrate seamlessly with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM for streamlined operability.

Improved Image Stabilizer Effect

Thanks to a newly enhanced Image Stabilizer system that features a more rigid mechanical structure and the incorporation of faster algorithms, the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM's Image Stabilizer effect has been improved from 3.5 stops to 4 stops** for better performance in even more challenging situations. Whether shooting in low light, or at any time a slow shutter speed is necessary, the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM's Image Stabilizer helps deliver stable, sharp results.
