The EF-S 55-250IS is a relatively new lens designed to supplement the EF-S 18-55IS "Kit Lens" for the Digital Rebel line of DSLRs. Like the EF-S 18-55/3.5-5.6 IS, the 55-250/4-5.6 IS uses Canon's new low cost IS system.

This telephoto zoom lens provides an angle of view equivalent to an 88-400mm used on a 35mm camera. This version is an update to the previous Canon 55-250mm IS II lens, adding Canon's new stepping motor technology, which promises smoother, quieter autofocus performance, which is especially suited to...

An 88-400mm equivalent, this is Canon's longest EF-S (digital only) zoom, and roughly the low-cost digital alternative to its 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L full-frame "white" image-stabilized zoom that's so hot with pros.

I purchased this lens to go with a lighter weight system (Canon SL1 and Canon 24mm pancake) I put together for more "casual" photography. I am really amazed at how sharp this lens is. Not as consistently sharp as my Canon 70-300L but when stopped-down to F8, it's very, very close.

I'm glad I opted for this model with the image stabilization. My pictures are amazingly sharp considering the zoom level from a distance. Not much of a photographer, but many people ask me to bring my camera to take pictures...they swear I am a professional photographer.

    STM Stepper Motor is awesome. Manual focus is full-time even when auto focus is enabled which allows one to tweak it just the way I want it. Motor is extremely quiet....which is perfect for filming video to eliminate unwanted noise. Crystal clear pictures even with moving objects at a distance.

This product is very good for long distance shots. It blurs out the background very well, and is very sturdily built.

I have been having eye problems for some time now and have to rely on auto-focus. this lense was the answer for my camera and be able to take telephoto pictures. I was able to get it at an affordable price by buying used which worked out surprisingly well. I am quite pleased with this purchase.

I gave this lens to my daughter-in-law to photo sporting event of my grandchildren. She used it this last weekend and the report I got back is that it is a great lens. I saw the photos and they are in perfect focus, crisp, and perfect colors.

I got this to replace my 85-200 mm lens. I wanted a decent telephoto with image stabilizing without having to pay an arm and a leg. First spin out with this lens, I was able to get some nice, crystal clear pictures of a hawk that was sitting way up a tree.

Its great lenses and would recommend for starting out telephotos. I mean It can't compare to an "L" series lenses from canon but sure does the job.

I am new to the SLR world. My Canon Rebel came with a basic lens, but I found I needed telephoto. Purchased this lens for vacation. Very glad I had it! Was able to get shots of faraway sights that I otherwise would have missed. Very pleased.
