    Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.The Canon EF-M18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is a 3x 
    standard zoom lens developed for interchangeable-lens digital 
    cameras compatible with EF-M lenses*.
    * Only the following cameras are compatible with EF-M lenses (as 
    of July 2012): 
    EOS M
     stands for Image Stabilizer.
     stands for stepping motor.
     Safety Precautions
    • Do not look at the sun or a bright light source through the 
    lens. Doing so could result in vision loss or blindness.
     it is attached to the camera or not, do not leave 
    the lens under the sun without the lens cap attached. This 
    is to prevent the lens from concentrating the sun’s rays, which 
    could cause a fire.
    Handling Cautions
    • If  the lens is taken from a cold environment into a warm 
    one, condensation may develop on the lens surface and 
    internal parts. To prevent condensation in this case, first 
    put the lens into an airtight plastic bag before taking it from a 
    cold to warm environment. Then take out the lens after it has 
    warmed gradually. Do the same when taking the lens from a 
    warm environment into a cold one.
     not leave the lens in excessive heat such as in a car in 
    direct sunlight.  High temperatures can cause the lens to 
     also refer to the handling cautions found in your 
    camera’s instructions.

    1. Mounting and Detaching the LensSee your camera’s instructions for details on mounting and 
    detaching the lens.
    • After  detaching the lens, place the lens with the rear end 
    up to prevent the lens surface and contacts from getting 
    scratched. (fig.❶)
    the contacts get soiled, scratched, or have fingerprints on 
    them, corrosion or faulty connections can result. The camera 
    and lens may not operate properly.
    the contacts get soiled or have fingerprints on them, clean 
    them with a soft cloth.
    you remove the lens, cover it with the dust cap. To attach 
    it properly, align the lens mount index and the   index of the 
    dust cap as shown  in the diagram, and turn clockwise. (fig. ❷) 
    To remove it, reverse the order.
    2. ZoomingTurn the lens’ zoom ring to adjust the size of the photo field or 
    subject. (fig.❸)
     wide shots, turn the zoom ring toward the wide end.
     close-ups, turn the zoom ring toward the telephoto end.
    • Be sure to finish zooming before focusing. Zooming after 
    focusing can affect the focus.
    may temporarily occur if the zoom ring is quickly 
    during still image exposure will result in delayed 
    focus. This causes any streaks of light that are captured 
    during exposure to be blurred.
    3. Manual FocusWhen the camera’s focus mode is set to [MF], focus manually by 
    turning the focusing ring (fig.❹).
    Quickly rotating the focusing ring may result in delayed focus.
    • Focus  mode is set using the camera. Please refer to the 
    camera’s instructions.
    autofocusing in [AF+MF] mode, focus manually by 
    pressing the shutter button halfway and turning the focusing 
    ring (full-time manual focusing).
    4. Image StabilizerThis lens is equipped with an Image Stabilizer. This function 
    corrects camera shake, allowing users to capture sharp images. 
    Also, the Image Stabilizer automatically provides optimal image 
    stabilization depending on shooting conditions (such as shooting 
    still subjects and following shots). Please set the Image Stabilizer 
    ON or OFF using the camera settings. See your camera’s 
    instructions for details.
    • The  Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a blurred shot 
    caused by a subject that moved.
    Image Stabilizer may not be fully effective if you shoot 
    from a violently shaking vehicle or other transportation.
    Image Stabilizer consumes more power than normal 
    shooting, so fewer shots can be taken if you use the 
    • When  shooting a still subject, it compensates for camera 
    shake in all directions.
    compensates for vertical camera shake during following 
    shots in a horizontal direction, and compensates for 
    horizontal camera shake during following shots in a vertical 
    you use a tripod, the Image Stabilizer should be 
    turned off to save battery power.
    with a monopod, the Image Stabilizer will be as 
    effective as during hand-held shooting. 
    However, depending on the shooting environment, the 
    Image Stabilizer effect may be less effective.
    ■ Dynamic IS Function (Movie shooting only)The EF-M18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is equipped with dynamic IS, 
    effective when shooting while walking since it expands the IS range.
    • Achieves  effective IS at the wide end.
    •  Automatically  activates when the camera is set to Movie

    5. Hood (sold separately)
    The EW-54 hood cuts out unwanted light and protects the front of 
    the lens from rain, snow, and dust.
    To attach the hood, align the hood’s attachment position mark with 
    the red dot on the front of the lens, then turn the hood as shown 
    by the arrow until the lens’ red dot is aligned with the hood’s stop 
    position mark. (fig.❺)
    The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage.
    • If 
    the hood is not attached properly, vignetting (darkening of 
    the perimeter of the picture) may occur.
    attaching or detaching the hood, grasp the base of 
    the hood to turn it. To prevent deformation, do not grasp the 
    rim of the hood to turn it.
    6. Filters (sold separately)You can attach filters to the filter mounting thread on the front of 
    the lens.
    Only one filter may be attached.
