With five UD elements, images are sharp and clear with reduced chromatic aberrations. Distortions that can occur in digital cameras, such as halo effects and ghosting, are eliminated to give your images clarity and a professional finish. The fluorite glass element stops internal reflection to prevent unwanted colour disturbances. The result is accurate detail and vivid colour reproduction throughout the focal range.
Shoot ultra steady images at slower shutter speeds with in-built 4-stop image stabilisation. High contrast images can be shot at slow shutter speeds, even in difficult light. With 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths, it’s possible to track moving subjects even when panning without causing blur. This is ideal for action photography or wildlife where a small movement can cause camera shake.
Ideal for shooting in Australia’s more challenging environments, this lens is dust and moisture resistant. Weather sealing stops anything from getting into the mechanics of this lens. So you can take it out into the harsh outdoors and it will be protected against microscopic dust particles and small splashes from water or rain.
Ultrasonic motor (USM) autofocus enables quick and accurate near-silent autofocus. Focus in on the action and take multiple shots with precision. The quiet motor is great when you need to be candid out in nature or at a wedding.
With full-time manual focus override, you can switch from AF mode to manual just by adjusting the focus ring on the barrel. This is great when you want to take control over a shot that isn’t quite working in autofocus. You don’t need to make any adjustments in the setting allowing you can work quickly.
A wide f/2.8 aperture delivers exceptional performance in low light right across the zoom range. Whether it's a portrait at dusk or a soccer match on a cloudy day, you can trust this lens will help you get the best shot in any lighting conditions.

This lens has fast autofocus and two Image stabiliser modes which helps with camera shake. However, if you’re going to be shooting for a long time or would like extra stability, we’d recommend a good quality monopod.
To protect the front element of your lens, we always recommend putting a protector filter on the lens. This ensure your lens is kept in the best condition possible for as long as possible. When out and about, you can store the lens in a lens pouch to protect it from the elements.
