Excerpt: This was my first zoom lens and I have to admit that I was pleased with it when I first bought it. Since then I have upgraded to the Canon 18-200mm and WILL NEVER go back to this lens. The difficulty it has with low (even lower) light conditions is pathetic.
Excerpt: This is a great lense for common pics but not for surfing photos[...] If you are taking Surfing photos do not listen to the people who do not take surfing photos! You will need to purchase a 400mm or larger for Surfing Photos!
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Cons: Image stabilization so so, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus
Excerpt: I do a lot of hiking so I wanted a light weight package to keep equipment weight down. I find the focus tends to soften in 250mm and you really notice the change in aperture. Using a haze/UV filter on this lense tends to really darken the shots, forget using a polarizer in all but the best lighting.
Summary: Bought Canon 55-250mm lens but instead got warranty card of DSLR Canon 1200D and that too photocopy of it. Cannot even register online at canon for warranty as the website requires uploading of original receipt. Though the product is good. Original invoice is required
Summary: This guys gave so much offer and sending us the camera that was part of some other combo kit. Quality is awesome Auto Focus is not faster and smoother when compared to my STM lense, but worth buying them. NO issue but only concern is about waranty
Summary: This lens is good one for an amateur photographer. The images are sharp. But it works well on Bright Sunny Day. In Low light or Shadow light, images look faded. It has got its own limitations. A professional has to go for a lens which shall be very expensive one.
