Canon unveils first dedicated telephoto zoom lens

Earlier this month, Canon added its first dedicated telephoto zoom lens to its EF-M range of lenses. The EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM is designed to fit Canon’s Compact System Camera, the EOS M, and it has Canon’s renowned optical performance, as well as advanced Stepping Motor Technology (STM), a 3.5-stop optical Image Stabilizer, and a 55-200mm focal range that helps you get even closer to the action.

Like the entire EF-M range, the EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM has a high-quality metal exterior, but its still compact, lightweight and portable, which means it’s great for everyday use. The lens also makes taking an excellent photo even easier – its non-rotating front element means you’ll get a consistent effect even when you’re using filters, and the full-time manual focus ring means you’ll always have creative freedom. Image quality is also maintained while you zoom because of the Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) element.

The 3.3-stop optical Image Shooter minimizes how much the camera shakes as you snap photos, which means sharper stills, even as you zoom. Nothing is lost while shooting movies, either. As the focus moves from one subject to the next, the STM technology ensures the transition is super smooth.

The EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM will be priced at $420.99, and Canon will start shipping orders early next month.
