Canon's EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II was launched as a standard zoom lens - designed specifically for the EOS Digital Rebel XT (EOS 350D) and EOS 20D SLR cameras.
The lens is optically the same as the original 18-55. The USM version was a retail version, although supplied with some European kits and in Japan.
The lens has APS-C size image circle equivalent to an approx. 28-90mm focal length. It is a compact, ultra-lightweight lens with close-focusing ability of 0.9 ft (0.28m). It has optimized coating for a digital imaging sensor to minimize ghost images and flare.
As a discountinued lens with only limited distribution, there is limited information on this lens, which we have endeavoured to collate here.
