Canon is introducing two new lenses, the EF-S 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens and EF 40 mm f/2.8 STM lens. Both new lenses includes Canon’s new Stepping Motor technology, which allows the lenses to smoothly and silently focus.
When used in combination with Canon’s new EOS Rebel T4i Movie Servo AF feature, the lenses achieve continuous AF while recording video.
The EF-S 18-135 mm lens offers Dynamic IS (Movie Shooting Mode only) that uses a wide image stabilization correction range to help ensure steady video even when shooting while walking.
The EF 40 mm lens is a “pancake-style” lens, less than an inch thick when attached.
The EF 40 mm f/2.8 STM lens and the EF-S 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM will be available at the end of June at an estimated retail price of $229.99 and $629.99 respectively.
