The Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens is a high performance zoom lens, equivalent to a 24-136mm focal length lens (5.6x standard zoom lens). Designed for EOS EF-S mount bodies, the lens covers wide angle and portrait focal ranges. The Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens offers a 4-stop Image Stabiliser in addition to the 0.35m close focusing distance throughout the zoom range. Featuring fantastic low-light performance, this lens also includes ultra low dispersion (UD) lenses, aspherical lens elements and lens coatings optimised to combat ghosting and flare – meaning high quality throughout. The Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens also features a circular aperture for beautiful bokeh. This EF-S lens is for use with Canon DSLRs with a cropped sensor (APS-C), such as the Canon 550D, 70D, 700D, 7D etc. This lens is not suitable for full-frame cameras, such as the 5D Mark II/III, EOS 6D, 1D X.
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, the IS function 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 a textured exterior finish for a high quality look and feel, that matches your EOS camera.
Ultra fast, ultra quiet auto focus
The ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive responsive, near-silent high speed auto focus. 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 treated with Canon’s Super Spectra lens coating which suppresses flare and prevents ghosting – which is more likely 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.
