Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5–5.6 IS STM

Ultra-wide lenses often come at a hefty price so Canon’s newest offering to the family is expected to make enthusiasts running to the nearest Camerahaus store. Made for APS-C cameras, the Canon EF-S 10-18 mm f/4.5-5.6 IS lens provides wide angles of view, weighs lightly, reduces camera shake through its image stabilization feature and is sold at a relatively cheap price (PhP 13,498, at time of posting).


If you have an interest in taking photos and videos of landscapes, interiors, architecture and events, this ultra-wide lens is perfect for you. Sharp focus of the foreground to the background is easily attainable and an expanded view of the landscape is guaranteed. Coming closer to the subject would give you a different dramatic perspective. The lens also comes in handy when shooting in tight areas especially in indoor locations. For architecture photography, this lens allows the whole frame of a building to fit in one shot without having to move too far. When shooting events or family gatherings, it would be essential for the occasion. Equipped also with a stepping motor (STM), it operates on less noise which is suitable for video coverages.

The Canon EF-S 10-18 mm f/4.5-f/5.6 IS is made of engineered plastic and designed with a polycarbonate mount that assures its quality while maintaining affordability. Among all the ultra-wide lenses from Canon, this is one of the lightest, weighing at 8.5 oz (240 g).

Ultimately, if you’re looking for a reasonably-priced ultra-wide lens, this could be a considerable option.
