Product Information : 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.
