Compact, lightweight and a wide magnification range. This standard zoom lens features a wide focal length range from normal to telephoto equivalent to 29-320mm in the 35mm format. It features an Optical Image Stabilizer for up to 4-stops of effective correction even at full zoom. Since Canon's optical image stabilization system is in the lens, not in the camera, you can see the stabilized, steadier images through the viewfinder. And the circular aperture can give beautiful background blur effects. This new wide zoom ratio EF-S lens delivers excellent high-speed performance at an affordable price.

This lens gives me excellent color and sharpness with my T4i,60D, and 70D bodies. It focuses fast and eliminates lens changing. It is made very well and has ample body and weight to it as well as having a metal mount. I highly recommend a Tiffen UV filter to protect the len's glass. Yes it is not "L" series glass but it is dependable and gives great picture results and the image stabilization works great.
