Lens Description: The 18–55mm zoom range, corresponding to 27–82.5mm on a 35mm full-frame format camera, is ideally designed for comfortable framing and capture of most subjects encountered in daily life or on vacation, and a built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system makes it possible to produce sharp images even when shooting handheld in low light. The OSS system is so effective that you'll be able to capture blur-free images at shutter speeds up to four steps slower than would be possible without image stabilization.
