Introduced alongside the Canon EOS 80D is an updated 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM, offered separately and as a kit with the camera. The 18-135mm offers a new 'Nano USM' motor and boasts between 2.5x (wide-angle) and 4.3x (telephoto) faster performance compared to the previous STM version.
Canon has also announced the PZ-E1 Power Zoom Adapter for the lens, a detachable device that can smoothly and silently operate the zoom at 10 different speed levels. The adapter can also be used remotely with Canon's Camera Connect app.
Emphasizing the 80D's appeal to video enthusiasts, Canon has introduced its first external microphone for use with DSLRs, the Canon Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1. It ships with a wind screen and offers a response range of 50Hz to 16kHz.
The EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM will ship in March for $599.99. The PZ-E1 Power Zoom Adapter will be sold for $149.99 and the DM-E1 Directional Microphone will be offered at $249.99; both will be available in June.
