Your Everyday Compact Zoom Lens

The RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM lens is a great addition to your kit, covering everyday zoom needs for your APS-C EOS R Series cameras. From shooting wide angle landscapes to portraits, the versatility of the lens will allow you to shoot in many scenarios.

  • Full Frame and APS-C Compatibility

    Whilst the RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM lens is designed to get the most out of an APS-C sized sensor, it can also be used on EOS R Full Frame cameras¹. This makes the lens a great go-to for those wanting to expand their existing RF lens kit without worrying about adapters.

  • Lightweight and Compact Design

    The light and compact design of the RF-S 18-45mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM is a great feature for those wanting an all purpose zoom lens without the heavy bulkiness of larger lenses, especially for those conscious about weight while travelling.
