Super-light cheep travel/hiking telephoto for full frame

C. Duppenthaler "-theDude", Amazon

  • Summary: This older lens is still very relevant since it is by far the lightest full frame lens covering this range. It lacks stabilization, but I have found this is the perfect medium telephoto lens to bring hiking if I was otherwise not going to bring a second lens due to weight or size. Image quality is surprisingly good especially with automatic lens correction profiles on the 5D and 6D.

good for price point

  • Summary: I bought this lens quite a few years back. I used it on my EOS A2, which dates me a little, I now use it on my t3i, and am still happy with the results. It is not the most sturdy lens, but if you are careful with your equipment, should last quite a few years. I have used it to shoot several weddings, lots of outdoors scenery, and family functions, has contributed to the thousands of photos of my children growing up.

A great starter zoom lens in the ~200mm range

  • Summary: Canon's EF 55-200mm F/4.5-5.6 II USM is a pretty good lens for the price that it's sold at. It's not the sharpest lens in the world, but its a great lens for those who want a little more zoom than what's available on the standard lenses. It won't cost you an arm or a leg like any of the L-lenses and still takes pretty good photos. Auto focus is fast - I photographed high-speed trains and it had no trouble focusing on them.

A decent general purpose lens.

  • Summary: I was looking for a general use lens for a gift. I tested it after it came and worked pretty well after adding a polorizing filter. I had hoped for a little more wide angle but does a decent job. All in all I am satisfied.

good lens...little bulky

superjester, Amazon

  • Summary: I really quite liked this lens. It takes great pictures and is easy to use. The only issue I have with it, and it isn't really an issue with the lens itself, is that it is a very specific lens, and is not what I would probably use on a daily basis. It is, however, one I would use if I was spending the day shooting distance shots.

good job

  • Summary: An all around good product, this lens does exactly what it intends to do. Nothing amazing, but doesn't disappoint if you're looking for a standard medium zoom lens. Relatively light-weight, and quick and easy to put on.

Good for the price, but not stunning

Simon St.Laurent, Amazon
2 March 2008
  • Summary: I bought this lens to complement the 18-55mm that came with my Digital Rebel, giving me a complete range from 18-200mm. Given that the Rebel effectively makes all lenses more telephoto (multiply by 1.6 for 35mm equivalent), and that I like to shoot in the range near 55mm, this lens seemed like a better idea than the more readily available 75-300mm lenses. Its build quality feels a lot like that of the 18-55mm, a little wobbly but nothing that interferes with using it.

  • Summary: The Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM is great lens for its price. I highly recommend this lens to those that have just gotten into using a DSLR camera.
