Since my previous review about the 18-55 IS lens was very well received, I decided to sort of iterate on that and review little kit lens' bigger brother, the Canon EF-S 55-250 IS lens, which is in fact another kit lens, a sort of continuation of the previous one that had a focal length of a ...

long-range tool for EF-S mount EOS cameras.
Powerful telephoto performance Affording you a
wide range of long focal lengths (equivalent to
88-400mm in a 35mm format), the EF-S 55-250 mm
Lens is both compact and affordable for a lens of
its calibre. It covers a great variety of
telephoto scenarios and requirements, all within
one lens. Now you can get up close and personal
with subjects from a distance, and be assured of
photographs with depth and clarity. The circular
aperture diaphragm works brilliantly at large
apertures for smooth, even blur - perfect for
emphasizing subjects shot against distracting
backgrounds. Stability for portfolio-worthy shots
The Canon EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 Zoom Lens
achieves a minimal focusing distance of only 1.1
metres between you and your subject. With a
four-stop image stabiliser featuring automatic
panning detection, it combats camera shake and
effectively suppresses blur in low light. You can
therefore use shutter speeds up to four times
slower without a noticeable increase in image
blur. This superior focusing mechanism is
invaluable when capturing distant subjects,
keeping things sharp and compelling and making it
a superior choice for sports, nature or even
portraiture. What's more, the panning detection
also automatically turns off image stabilization
in either the horizontal or vertical direction
when the camera is following moving subjects so
you capture things just as you see them. Quality
design A Canon UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) lens
element is used to suppress the effects of
secondary chromatic aberrations, so you'll get
crisper, sharper images with excellent contrast,
without fringing occurring throughout the zoom
range. The E-FS 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS Telephoto

The Canon 55-250mm IS is what Sherlock Holmes would use!

Advantagesnice zoom, sharp focus, premium feel

Disadvantagessome pincushion and barrel distortion, slight curvature of focal plane, some colour fringing

"...kit lens' bigger brother, the Canon EF-S 55-250 IS lens, which is in fact another kit lens, a sort of continuation of the previous one that had a focal length of a maximum of 55mm. Before getting into details of the bigger brother, I feel there are still some question marks that have to be straightened out. How can there be more than one kit lens, and why would you need a second one? I will not mention other brands, but what I know about Canon ..." Read review

Brilliant Lens - Brilliant Price

AdvantagesPrice, Quality

DisadvantagesNone

"...this lens to accompany my Canon EOS 450d and it really has been a brilliant purchase. Pick one up on Amazon for well under £200 which is an absolute bargain. It has very good build quality and you really will notice the picture quality difference between using this lens and using the standard kit lens (18-55). I got this lens just before Christmas and so I have only had it for around a month, but I have been really impressed with its capability. ..." Read review

Product Information for "Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS" »

Manufacturer's product description

Compact and lightweight- the EF-S 55-250 f4-5.6 IS offers the longest zoom range in the EF-S series to date. The 88-400mm equivalent focal length opens up new framing possibilities for owners of EF-S mount cameras shooting wildlife- sports and travel photography. Optical quality is assured through a UD element- which minimises chromatic aberrations that could otherwise cause reduced contrast and colour fringing. The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS lens has won the TIPA Award for Best Entry Level Lens in Europe 2008.
