Product Details

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Camera Lens - 2044B002

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.

  • Focal Length & Maximum Aperture: 55-250mm f/4-5.6

    This is a great lens, especially considering how inexpensive it is. It works seamlessly with my Canon XSi and the pictures are sharp and clear. It's better for outside pictures or where there is a lot of light because the lowest fstop is f4.5, so if you plan of taking pictures at weddings or other indoor activities where available light may be low you may want to invest in a different but faster lens.

    One could tell by the price that this is NOT a top end product. However, it does zoom to 250 (or 400 if you apply the 1.6x factor). And it does have IS. Therefore, it is a very decent price for the features. Note the aperature f/4-5.6 and the weight (less than 1 lb). Picture quality: decent. Great for outdoor, not so great for indoor.
