An ideal all-around lens, the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS from Canon is a 28.8-320mm equivalent zoom covering a versatile wide-angle to telephoto range. Using both aspherical and ultra-low dispersion elements, color fringing, chromatic aberrations, and spherical aberrations are well-controlled for a high degree of sharpness, color accuracy, and clarity. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast. Complementing the imaging capabilities is a four-stop-effective Image Stabilizer system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, a DC Micro Motor autofocus system delivers quick focusing performance and a minimum focusing distance of 1.5' is available for close-up shooting.
