High performance flexible wide-angle zoom
With an effective focal length range of approximately 24-136mm (35 mm equivalent), the EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a lens that delivers outstanding flexibility while delivering remarkable image quality. With its wider angle than many comparable lenses, it captures more of the scene and adds a greater sense of space and perspective to your photography.
The EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM features Canon's 4-stop Image Stabilizer (IS). Ideal for handheld work, IS allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower without causing image blur. The Image Stabilizer helps when shooting in low light conditions or from moving vehicles.
Looks as good as it performs
The EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM features Canon's new exterior design, with a textured finish for a high-quality look and feel, that matches your EOS camera.
Ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus
The ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive responsive, near-silent high-speed autofocus. The ring-type USM allows full-time manual focus override without having to switch out of AF, for a greater level of usability.
Super Spectra coatings
Lens elements are coated using Canon's Super Spectra lens coating which suppresses flare and prevents ghosting - which is more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor. Canon's Super Spectra coating also helps achieve true colour balance and increase contrast for vivid hi-fidelity images.
Creative background blur
A 7 blade circular aperture enables photographers to achieve a beautiful background blur; ideal for isolating your subject from the background.
