Quick OverviewBrand - Canon
Compact and lightweight with a design that's ideal for travel, this ultra-wide angle zoom lens fits more in the frame, adding impact to landscapes, cityscapes and skies. It even allows you to capture expansive interiors and architecture without stepping back.
Capture life as it happens in front of you, from the streets of your town to emotional events.
Photograph sweeping views wherever you find them, from dawn to dusk. From hillsides and seascapes to city landmarks and urban landscapes.
Find beauty in structure and bring imposing monuments and sweeping cityscapes to life.
Travel photography isn’t just for globetrotters - get out and about. Sightseeing, lazy days and spur of the moment mini-breaks are all memories to treasure.
When you want to expand your photographic capabilities, the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is the natural additional to your kit. The 10-18mm range gives you an ultra-wide perspective, allowing you to capture imposing architecture and expansive landscapes. Whereas a standard kit lens would usually cover a range of 18-55mm, which is useful for more general purposes.
Create high quality movies during your holidays with the near-silent STM technology. The Stepping Motor helps you deliver steady and quiet continuous focusing, meaning that your audio recording only captures the surrounding sounds without the noise of a focusing motor.
When shooting your everyday movies or stills in low light, the Image Stabilizer (IS) technology in the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is just what you need to compensate for any slight camera shake, helping you capture your moment first time.
Concentrate on the look of your landscape shots without worrying about the sun interfering, thanks to the Super Spectra Coating. This means you don’t have to worry about unwelcome orbs of colour or areas of low contrast, allowing you to shoot more freely and concentrate more on enjoying the view.

If you recently purchased your first DSLR or mirrorless camera, you probably know it won’t reach its true potential unless you add a few lenses to your basket. Your DSLR purchase could turn into wastage of money if you don’t ever replace the kit lens that came with the camera. Invest in a new lens will certainly bring a huge boost to image quality. Buying a new lens could be intimidating, as you must dive deep into the world of lenses for making an informed purchase. We can always consult with our experts at Ryans either online or physically visiting your nearby Ryans showroom. However, this article aims to help you out with building a greater understanding of lenses.
There are five different parameters that you need to take into consideration while purchasing a lens for your camera. Let’s take a closer look at all these parameters one by one.
Lens Speed is the first thing you need to take into account while purchasing a lens for your DSLR. Lens Speed describes the maximum aperture of the lens. Aperture is a hole within a lens, which allows light to travel into the camera sensor. You can shrink or enlarge the size of the aperture to allow more or less light to reach your camera sensor. It is described as a number with the letter F next to it. The smaller the number the larger the hole and more light can get passed at a time. This means that the shutter speed can be quicker and means the lens is faster.
The maximum aperture of a camera will help you work out several things.
A fast lens for instance with a maximum aperture of f/1.4 is capable of taking shots in a lot darker places than a lens with a maximum aperture of f/4 or f/5.6.
A faster lens will also allow you to take pictures of moving subjects and freeze them better.
Faster lenses let you have a shallower depth of field. This means that when you’re focusing upon a subject the foreground and background will be blurrier. Of course, having a very fast lens means that this can make focusing trickier as your depth of field is very shallow. Of course, you can shoot at a smaller aperture with a fast lens to make your depth of field deeper.
Faster lenses will help with your flash photography too as they capture more ambient light.
Focal length allows you to change the perspective of your shot without having any movement. A shorter focal length, like a 24mm one, will allow you to capture a wider slice of the scene. On the other hand, a longer focal length, such as a 200mm, allows you to get closer to the action. That’s why longer lenses are used for capturing distant objects and shorter lenses are good for capturing landscapes. The focal length of a lens tells you how much it will magnify your subject when photographing it. It will also tell you what kind of angle of view you’ll get.
This is the measurement between the end of your lens and the nearest point that it can focus. It’s particularly useful to know if you’re interested in Macro or close up photography.
Many mirrorless cameras have image stabilization built into the body to help eliminate camera shake. However, this feature is quite rare in DSLRs. If you want stabilization on a camera that doesn’t have it built-in, you have to buy a lens that comes with this feature. Manufacturers use various tags to denote this feature, from Canon’s IS (Image Stabilization) to Nikon’s VR (Vibration Reduction) to Sony’s OSS (Optical Steady Shot).
Stabilization isn’t always necessary for still photography — shooting at a fast shutter speed will also keep things nice and sharp. However, when working in low light at slow shutter speeds, shooting video in any conditions, or using a very long focal length, stabilization is very important. Stabilization is more common in zoom lenses, less so on primes where the wider apertures let you shoot faster shutter speeds.
