Canon also introduced the Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm and 75-300mm Lenses kit.

Included with the Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR Camera lenses kit: the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens, which provides a 28.8-88mm equivalent focal length range that covers wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives. One aspherical element is featured in the optical design, to control spherical aberrations and contribute to higher clarity, and an Optical Image Stabilizer minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Extending the combined zoom range even further, the EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 III lens is also included, which offers an equivalent focal length range of 120-480mm. Well-suited to use with distant subjects, this lens utilizes a DC autofocus motor to acquire precise focus while the telephoto perspective is especially useful for visually compressing the space between subjects and producing a shallow depth of field. Additionally, an EOS Shoulder Bag 100ES is also featured in this kit, and serves as a convenient means to protect and carry the entire DSLR and two lens kit.
