Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens Australia Press Release

Compact, High Magnification All-in-One Zoom Lens

The EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens offers a high magnification range and Image Stabilizer technology in a lightweight, compact design

Sydney, 26 August 2008: Canon Australia responds to market demand with the launch of the highly-anticipated EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS telephoto zoom lens for Canon EOS DSLR cameras. Photo enthusiasts looking for a compact and lightweight lens with superior high magnification zoom performance need look no further.

"Traditionally enthusiast photographers buy one lens for their close up shots and another for capturing distant subjects. With this new EF-S lens from Canon they won't need to as it offers superior optical performance on both counts," stated Chris Macleod, EOS Brand Manager, Canon Australia. "This combined with Canon's trusted optical ability and high speed Auto Focus System results in a perfect all-round lens that will help users take their photography to the next level."

More Versatility For Users
The new lens features an 18-200mm high zoom ratio of up to approximately 11 times, spanning wide to telephoto (focal length image equivalent to 29-320mm in 35mm format). Enthusiast photographers will welcome the versatility this lens offers and the creative possibilities it unfolds.

The EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens fits all APS-C sized sensor models including the EOS 1000D, EOS 450D, EOS 40D and the EOS 50D. The lens also comes packaged with the EOS 50D and EOS 450D Premium Kits.

Increased Portability
An attractive feature of the new lens for enthusiast photographers is its light weight and portability, perfect for travelling and situations where saving space is essential. Instead of lugging two lenses around, photographers can be confident that, when they are equipped with the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, all their requirements are taken care of.

High Performance Technology
Canon's superior Image Stabilizer Lens technology helps correct the effects of hand-held shake. This technology enables camera shake compensation of approximately four shutter speeds, giving users greater opportunity to experiment with low-light, tripod-free photography.

The Canon EF-S18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens (RRP $TBC) will all be available from 1 October 2008 through Canon dealers nationally. For more information customers can contact Canon on 1800 021 167, or visit the website at canon.com.au.
