The STM in the lens’ name refers to its Stepping Motor driven autofocus, which Canon designed with video recording in mind. This type of AF is near silent and beautifully smooth – just what you need for video capture. Another great feature is its 4-stop Image Stabilisation, which helps to reduce camera shake when shooting handheld stills and video. Video aside, you also can enjoy superb image quality when capturing stills, with corner to corner sharpness over the entire focal length range.
