The versatility of this EF-M 18-55mm lens is not only a factor because of the handy focal length, but also a number of other included features that really help your cause, no matter your subject or constraints. First of is a built-in image stabiliser, which is rated at offering an improvement in stability of up to 4 shutter speeds, which equates to no more camera shake! Dynamic IS means this stability is not only a feature for still photography, but also video. The second spectacular feature that will please both photography and video enthusiasts is the stepping motor, which provides focus that is at once fast and quiet - a must have for EOS M users considering the full-featured continuous shooting and high resolution movies that these cameras are capable of.
