Exellent short range zoom lens for all Canon EOS Film and Digital SLR cameras
This lens features a fast f/2.8 Maximum Aperture and Canon's latest optical Image Stabilizer technology, providing up to 3-stop compensation for image blur caused by camera shake and slow shutter speeds. This ensures clear, crisp images, and makes handheld photography possible in more low-light situations than ever before.
Designed specifically for digital photography, the lens has specially shaped lens elements and Super Spectra coatings to suppress ghosting and flare, which can be caused by reflections off digital camera sensors. Features three aspherical lens elements (two types) as well as a Super-UD glass element for high image quality at all focal lengths. Ring-type USM provides ultra-quite, super-fast, precision auto focusing and predictive tracking. Inner Focusing and new AF algorithms, with full-time mechanical manual focusing. Produce brilliant out-of-focus characteristics with the circular aperture. (less)

There's a whole spectrum of imagery that only a large f/1.4 aperture can create. A minimum focusing distance of 30cm makes it useful for shooting images of flowers and similar subjects as well.
Sharp and clear from corner to corner - Precision Sony AA (advanced aspherical) technology and ZEISS T* coating contribute to excellent optical performance, achieving outstanding corner-to-corner resolution.
For low-light shooting and smooth bokeh - f/1.4 maximum aperture captures clear images in low light. That and a 9-blade circular aperture enhance this lens's capability for stunningly beautiful background bokeh.
DDSSM for quiet focus speed and precision - DDSSM (Direct Drive SSM) precisely and quietly positions the heavy full-frame focus group for optimum focus even within the lens's shallowest depth of field. Ideal for movies as well as stills.
Internal focusing - Only the middle groups of the optical system are moved to achieve focusing, which leaves the total length of the lens intact. Benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you're using a polarizing filter.
Optimized for movies as well as stills - An aperture ring with switchable clicks can be turned ON for tactile feedback when shooting stills or OFF for smooth, quiet operation when shooting movies.
Unmatched T* (T-star) coating - The fact that lens coating technology -- vapor deposition of a thin, even coating on the lens surface to reduce reflections and maximize transmission -- was originally a Carl Zeiss patent is well known. The Carl Zeiss company also developed and proved the efficacy of multi-layer coatings for photographic lenses, and this is the technology that became the T* coating. (less)
