Product Details

Canon Black EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens - EFS55250MM

This telephoto zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining compactness and lightness, in response to demands of photographers. This high zoom ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses), and the image stabilizer effect equivalent to a shutter speed about 4 stops faster than the same size lens without Image Stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you could formerly hold a 250mm lens steadily was 1/250th of a second, with Canon's 4-stop stabilization correction, you could hand-hold at shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second. It also uses a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. This new EF-S telephoto lens with great features delivers excellent performance at an affordable price for all photographers.

      Comments about Canon Black EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens:

      I own this lens and use with T2i , i do mostly out door nature pix and find this lens light weight and good for close ups and short distances, i am not a professional so i dont know all the correct terms but the pictures are sharp and color is good,also the lens covers a lot of ranges so i leave it on my camera most of the time..so this is a good overall lens for everyday use ,

        Comments about Canon Black EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens:

        If you own a crop-sensor camera like any of the Digital Rebels or the Canon 50D/60D/70D or even the 7D then this is THE value telephoto zoom lens to get. Beside its intended use, Its ideal for travel due to its low weight, good zoom range, and low cost - even if you damaged/lost it, it won't be a big setback. Unless you're a professional, this lens is all you need. One of the best value lenses from Canon.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Canon Black EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens:

          I have used this lens for distant (tens of kilometers) mountain shots, as well as to get closer to wildlife that is relatively nearby (50 meters, or so). The quality of the build of the lens is good, and I have been satisfied with the autofocus and IS. However, I have been unhappy with the crispness of the focus of this lens - particularly for distant shots. For closer scenes, the focus is better, but still cannot be described as "crisp". I will "get by" with this lens until I can afford a better one.
