|EF||Autofocus lens designed both for Canon full frame and APS-C SLR cameras.|
|IS||The lens is equipped with optical image stabilizer. The stabilizer allows to increase the shutter speed by several stops and shoot handheld in such lighting conditions and at such focal lengths where without stabilizer you will have to use tripod, decrease the shutter speed and/or increase the ISO setting which can lead to blurry and noisy images.|
|USM||The lens is equipped with ultrasonic motor to provide very fast and virtually silent autofocus. Learn more|

Design and Features
Canon's first full-frame standard zoom equipped with optical image stabilizer.
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, made of plastic. The lens mount is metallic.
The lens features AF/MF focus mode switch.
|AF||Autofocus mode with Full-Time Manual Focus.|
|MF||Manual focus mode.|
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 72 mm which are easy to find. However, filters of such size are more expensive and mainly used with professional lenses.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
The lens features optical image stabilizer, which, according to the manufacturer, compensates up to 3 stops of shutter speed. Theoretically it allows to capture sharp images of static subjects at shutter speeds down to 1/17 second at focal length of 135 mm*).
*) without the need to increase ISO sensitivity and/or use a tripod, at the same lighting conditions and at the same aperture
The image stabilizer does not have any specialized mode of operation and is not capable of automatic detection of panning.
