The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS is a lower cost image stabilizing lens capable of a wide range of focal lengths. The 7.5x zoom range is the approximate equivalent of ranging from 29 mm to 216 mm focal length. High quality imaging is achieved with aspherical lens elements and ultra low dispersion (UD) lenses, which when combined with specialized lens coatings allow light to enter the lens glare-free. A circular aperture is used to give a natural blur to background elements, keeping the subject the focus of attention. Image stabilization accounts for enough movement to allow clear images to be captured 4 stops lower than what would otherwise be possible.
