  • Canon hasn't produced many EF-S lenses, but it seems to have taken the same success story behind the 70-300mm IS and applied it here to great effect. The bottom line here is that Canon has packed two important things into this lens for a surprisingly low ...

  • Abstract:  This is the second and final part of our comprehensive lens recommendations for the new entry-level Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D. This time we've assessed zoom lenses from both the Canon and third party makers to see how well they perform on the camera, and...

  • The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM is a sharp telephoto zoom, but its aperture is anything but ambitious....

  • Abstract:  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 Canons new low cost IS system. Nevertheless, Canon claims up t...

  • Abstract:  The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS is a tiny tele lens with a comparatively impressive performance potential. The resolution is very good across the range. Chromatic aberrations are almost a non-issue in field conditions. The level of distortions rema...

  • Lightweight and compact; affordably priced; very usable manual focus capability; optical image stabilization for sharper handheld photos at slow shutter speeds.
  • All-plastic construction, which is less durable than metal; sharpness falls off at 250mm where it is likely to see a lot of use.
  • A lightweight, compact design coupled with its stabilized 400mm-equivalent focal length zoom and affordable price make the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS a versatile lens for entry-level shooters and amateurs on a budget. Specifications: Weight: 13.8 oz...

  Published: 2008-06-01, review by: tipa.com

  • Abstract:  This telephoto zoom offers a tremendous range of focal lengths and features an optical image stabilizer, which allows around 4 stops of light to be gained. This asset compensates for the modest aperture of f/4-5.6, and in terms of use, effectively con...

  • Abstract:  Canon announced this lens along with the new Canon 40D, on August 20th, 2007, but sadly its not announced in the USA. We in the USA are out of luck, which is too bad, because this lens looks like the perfect tele zoom for families for the Rebel XTi a...
