This wide-angle zoom lens is specifically designed for APS-C-sized sensors, providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 16-28.8mm. The wide angle is ideal for taking wide landscape shots. It’s also great for architecture, encompassing nature such as waterfalls and grand trees that take up a lot of the frame.
This lens is features a UD element, an aspherical element and a large-diameter element, minimising unwanted chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range. This gives your images clarity and sharpness while eliminating unwanted disruptions in your images.
Anti-reflection lens coatings have been applied to this lens to reduce flare and ghosting. This will improve image quality and remove unwanted colour distortions and aberrations in areas of low contrast. So you won’t need to worry about unwelcome glare, halos and haze when shooting landscapes and in sunny situations.
The optical image stabiliser minimises camera shake by up to four stops even in low light. It also helps even when you’re shooting from a long distance, which can be difficult to keep shots still and without blur.
The STM stepping motor with advanced AF algorithms and a high-speed CPU achieves smooth, near-silent autofocus that is quick and accurate. This allows you to stay in the moment and not worry about your image being out of focus.
A seven-blade circular diaphragm helps to produces an aesthetic out-of-focus quality. Achieve creamy bokeh which brings definition out in your subject while giving your background a softness. This is great for photographing nature, weddings and portraits where you want to create a mood.

This compact and lightweight lens is great for landscape, architecture and travel photography.
The 10-18mm lens is compatible with EF-S mounts for Canon crop sensor DSLR cameras only, so it is not compatible with the Canon 5D Mark IV. It will work with the range of Canon APS-C cameras such as the 7D Mark II or 80D.
Be sure to turn on the image stabilisation on the lens to help with camera shake when shooting handheld. However, if you would like to be more precise with your photos, we’d recommend a good quality tripod.
There are various filters you could try for unique effects in outdoor landscape photos. A polarising filter is an option, to help make skies bluer and manage glare. You could also invest in a neutral density filter if you’re wanting to do long exposures.
