A Great Bargain

Tim, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I had bought this same lens (by itself, not with the kit) from a local retail store for over $300, but soon found this kit on Amazon. Being almost half as much as the one I had already bought, I decided to take a chance and order this one (since it was such a bargain I was also able to order the tripod I wanted). I received the package by the end of the week and immediately compared it to the lens I still had from the retail store.

Great telephoto lens

  • Excerpt: I am new to the DSLR world...What was I waiting for?!? I've used this lens to shoot pics of the moon with a Rebel T3i (18MP?) and it produced a pretty clear picture upon cropping and I didn't even have it on a tripod. Seems to have good image stabilization. I haven't used the auto focus much at all to be able to comment on that functionality.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable

You won't be disappointed!

  • Summary: Love love love this lens! Have not tried in low lighted situations yet. I have used it indoors with limited light with no problems. Absolutely love the IS feature. Not disappointed. This lens is heavier than my other lenses, but does not feel cheap. Very well made. Packaged perfect for shipping. The other included accessories were just an added bonus!

Great Entry Level Zoom Lens

  • Excerpt: So far I have used this lens for some wild life photos. The additional zoom is a must have along with the kit lens in my opinion. If you plan on purchasing this lens to shoot video, I would recommend spending the additional money to get the STM version which offers much quieter auto focus. If this is not an issue save the money and get this one.

Like this product!

  • Summary: Not so good under poor light situations, to be honest, you need to test it under different lights conditions so you can know it's limitations. Something i like about the lens, is the image stabilizer, cause it really helps. In conclusion it's a great product for that price!! I'm happy with it! I would definitely recommend it.

Canno EF-S 55-250mm and stuff

N. Abdallah, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I was looking for a telephoto that had the stabilization and auto focus feature for my Canon Rebel T3i. I had just purchased my camera and it came with the standard lens of 18mm-55mm. Which is a great lens for pictures that I can get pretty close to. But I needed something that if I was out in nature, I could get some decent shots with a zoom. Not one to want to disturb nature doing its thing.

  • Summary: Well worth the price, no problems, works better than I thought. I wasn't sure about the lense because it didn't come from Canon Live and learn.
