Minimum focus is a constant 0.24m over the zoom range, and the round diaphragm provides exquisite bokey (blur effects). The internal focusing system with its ring-type USM is quick and quiet, while the full-time manual focus enables manual focusing even in autofocus mode. The lens mechanism is designed to ensure that it fits only EOS DIGITAL SLR cameras designed to take EF-S lenses, and it is equipped with a special attachment indicator and protective rubber mount ring to prevent mistaken attempts to attach it to other EOS SLR cameras, and to prevent damage to the camera body.
NOTE: Can only be used with digital SLR cameras that support EF-S lenses.
