Lens Test: Canon 55-250mm f/4-5.6 EF-S IS

Pop Photo
18 July 2010
  • Excerpt: An 88-400mm equivalent, this is Canon's longest EF-S (digital only) zoom, and roughly the low-cost digital alternative to its 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L full-frame "white" image-stabilized zoom that's so hot with pros.

  • Excerpt: 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 Canon's new low cost IS system.

  • Excerpt: Features and handling The unusual 55-250mm focal length range of this telephoto lens butts up neatly with Canon’s 18-55mm standard kit lens. Between them, the two optics offer EOS users an uninterrupted range of 18-250mm – that’s 29-400mm once you factor in the EOS system 1.6x crop factor.

EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS

20 July 2009
  • Conclusion: When writing the summary of this particular lens we can easily say that we get what we paid for. After spending less than 300 USD we can get a lens with a good resolution at the whole focal length range, with well controlled chromatic aberration and optical stabilization – maybe not being 4EV, but...
  • Cons: slight focal plane tilt which results in small, however measurable, differences in chromatic aberration and resolution levels between the two sides of the frame, noticeable astigmatism, relatively large vignetting for all focal lengths, too much plastic in its body
