About Canon 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS II IS

This Canon 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS II IS Bundle comes with $9.95 worth of free accessories including a New Leaf PLUS 1yr Lens Warranty and Shipping is free!

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.

Don't Let the Construction Fool You

Don't let the plastic lens mount and entry-level construction fool you, this lens produces high quality images and a very low price. I have some "L" glass for more serious work but for kids' athletics, trips to the zoo, and for following my granddaughters around the back yard this lens is perfect. Sharp with good contrast, its also light weight with an excellent implementation of Canon's Image Stabilization. It doesn't take up much space in my backpack so I carry it every day.

This is really a great Canon lens for the money. I shoot it on a Canon EOS 60D and the combination is just about perfect for everyday shooting.

A decent telephoto lens for the price

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".

Best Lens in the Box

By

I received this lens with my T5i camera along with the EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS STM. I hardly ever use the latter lens outdoors. The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II to me is a standard lens for all around use outdoors. I am a nature photographer, especially birds. I added a 2x telephoto extender to the lens and it is very difficult to focus manually and still get good shots of birds in flight. However, without the extender, I have had great success with the auto focus and have not used a tripod yet. Hand held shots are easy and come out great. I have also used this lens to shoot wedding photos. Mine came out better than the professional photographers. Maybe because I knew what I was shooting. I highly recommend this lens. It is one that should be in everyone's bag. The price is right and this is a great lens.

Very nice tool in my bag

By

Took a few shots with this on a dance recital, and was amazed by the focus and sharpness. Was thinking of upgrading the 18-55 and 55-250 combo to 18-135 and selling the combo after. Now have to rethink if I want to let this one go.

Awesome detail at long distances

By

This lens can capture amazing detail at a distance. I love it. I really like how I can get a beautiful, soft blurred background and yet have every last fine detail of my subject stand out. For example, at the zoo, I was able to get beautiful images of animals where you can see all the fine details of their feathers or fur, making you want to reach out and touch the photo. The image stabilization feature really helps a lot. I can capture very sharp photos of fast-moving objects, even while zoomed all the way in and handholding the camera. It has been fun to take pictures of faraway objects and look at them later, to discover details that I couldn't see with the naked eye at the time. If you like to take photos of animals or fill the frame with distant details, this is a good lens.

Good price for a good lens

By

I am a professional photographer, but I bought this lens for my wife. She has a Canon SL1. It's easy for her to use and has a good range. I wish it was a little faster for low light situations. If you plan to shoot indoor sports like basketball or volleyball, you will probabley need a faster lens. For the price, however, it's a good long lens for amateur shooters.

Great value lens

By

I bought this product refurbished (D grade), and so far it appears indistinguishable from a new product. It has a good zoom range, and has decent autofocus. I ended up purchasing this after considering the IS 70-300 mm lens. It seemed a better value, and I like being able to use manual focus when in autofocus mode.

great zoom for price

By

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 ,

Heavy But Worth It

By

I have been using this lens as my prime lens for 2.5 years. I'm a biologist, and most of my pictures are of landscapes, with some macro work and people pictures included. The Canon EF-S 55-250 mm lens performs beautifully for landscapes and people; it also has good macro capability, and this is adequate for almost all situations. Of course, I would like the lens to give me longer telephoto and closer macro views, but one lens can't do everything. The only negative is that the lens is very heavy. Nevertheless, I hiked all over Arches and Canyonlands National Parks last summer with the lens on my Canon T2i around my neck, and I hardly noticed the weight because I was focused on the great pictures I was getting.

Best value & quality in a crop-sensor tele-zoom

By

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.

OK Lens for snapshots - poor focus at infinity

By

I have been using this lens for 6 months regularly. It was purchased as a refurb. Generally, it has functioned very well, mechanically. The focusing motor is good and I don't feel that it is noisy. I would use this lens much more often, except that for more distant subjects the focus is very poor at any aperture setting.
