Manufacturer description: Super-compact and light, this lens is compatible with all EOS cameras and ideal for digital SLRs–when used on the EOS Digital Rebel, it’s equivalent to an approx. 90-320mm lens. The 13-element design’s new optical coatings are optimized for digital cameras. It focuses down to under 4 feet (1.2m), and its Micro USM-powered AF is faster than ever, due to new electronics within the lens.
