Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Lens with Optical Image Stabilization (Black)

For photographers and videographers wishing to expand the scope and variety of their lens collection, the Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Lens with Optical Image Stabilization is an excellent option. Compact and lightweight with optical image stabilization that can correct shake up to 4.5 equivalent stops. When used in conjunction with EOS R series cameras that have an in-body image stabilizer, it has a shake correction range of up to 7.0 equivalent stops (IBIS). It dramatically increases the camera's field of view, allowing it to take handheld, sharp pictures of distant things. The RF-S telephoto zoom lens, an excellent next lens for users of the EOS R50, R10, and even R7, provides versatility, power, and range to your collection at an affordable price.

STM Stepping Motor

It has Canon's incredible STM stepping motor, which supports Canon's Movie Servo AF for quiet, continuous, and smooth focus corrections. Two UD lens elements in the RF-S55-210mm F5-7.1 IS STM lens help to eliminate chromatic aberration, resulting in exceptional image quality with great resolution and contrast. A seven-blade circular aperture produces stunning, delicate backgrounds.

Unique and Compact Design

The mechanical six-group zoom system in the RF-S55-210mm F5-7.1 IS STM lens, which has a minimum focusing distance of 2.4 feet/0.73 meters (at 210mm), and 3.2 feet/1.0 meters (at 55mm), allows for a compact design with a maximum magnification of 0.28x at the telephoto end.

Excellent Visual Clarity

When utilized on cameras with APS-C size image sensors, it provides excellent telephoto coverage, with full frame equivalent coverage of roughly 88-336mm. Two UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass elements, one aspheric element, and Canon Super Spectra Coating (SSC) are all present in the lens to reduce flare and ghosting. When used with EOS R series cameras equipped with an in-body image stabilizing feature, it has optical image stabilization of up to 4.5 stops of shake correction and up to 7.0 stops of shake correction (IBIS). The frame is filled with a subject the size of a credit card at a minimum focus distance of roughly 28.7 inches/0.73 meters and a maximum magnification of 0.28x (at 210mm focal length). For smooth, noise-free video AF operation, the Canon leadscrew type STM (stepping motor) focus drive is particularly well suited.
