Has it been one year already since the EOS Rebel SL1 was released and reviewed? That seems to be the case, although we do wonder what took Canon so long to coat the Rebel SL1 in a coat of white, where it will arrive with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens this time around as you can see above, coupled with another two lenses that we will talk about in greater detail after the jump.
First up, the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM as you can see above, will play nice with all EOS Digital SLR cameras, including full-frame models like the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 6D Digital SLR cameras. This ultra wide-angle zoom lens will deliver high image quality and an Optical Image Stabilizer (IS) for shake correction, as well as up to four shutter speed steps, making it possible to perform handheld shooting even in dimly lit scenes where there is a risk of camera shake happening. Not only that, the ultra wide-angle zoom lens will also boast of newly developed, high quality Canon optics which incorporate three GMo (Glass-Molded) aspheric lens elements, including a large-diameter aspheric lens, which help improve image quality by correcting aberrations.
As for the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM that is depicted above, it has been developed to be a companion lens for the Canon EOS 70D, EOS Rebel T5i, EOS Rebel SL1 and other EOS Digital SLR cameras that sport APS-C size image sensors. It will further expand Canon’s range of Stepping Motor (STM) lenses, targeting entry-level users who want an affordable wide-angle lens with the ability to shoot creative, high-quality images and video in tight indoor locations.
The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM ultra-wide zoom lenses are tipped to arrive later this June for $1,199.00 and $299.99, respectively, while the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 and EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit in white will cost you $749.99 a pop.
