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

The Digital Picture
8 January 2010
  • Excerpt: The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens is an inexpensive, light, entry level telephoto zoom lens that has image stabilization, very good image quality for the price and a very useful focal length range that will nicely complement most general purpose zoom lenses . It is a Canon "EF-S" lens, so the 55-250 IS STM lens is only compatible with APS-C format Canon EOS DSLR cameras including at this time the ultra-popular Rebel/***D/****D, **D (70D, 60D, 50D) and 7D...

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens Review

ePHOTOzine
8 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This telephoto zoom lens provides an angle of view equivalent to an 88-400mm used on a 35mm camera. This version is an update to the previous Canon 55-250mm IS II lens, adding Canon's new stepping motor technology, which promises smoother, quieter autofocus performance, which is especially suited to recording video.
  • Pros: Great sharpness in the centre throughout the zoom range, Lightweight, Fast focusing, Effective stabiliser
  • Cons: Plastic lens mount may put some buyers off this lens, Quite expensive compared to its predecessor

  • Conclusion: An ‘amateur’ lens with lots of plastic, but lightweight and portable. For everyday use, this is a great second lens for the kit bag

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS - Retest @ 15mp / Review

photozone.de
29 May 2008
  • Conclusion: 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 remains moderate. The most obvious flaw is, unsurprisingly, vignetting at large apertures.

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Lens

PhotoReview
1 March 2008
  • Summary: A budget-priced tele-zoom lens with built-in image stabilisation.Canon's new EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS is designed specifically for cameras with 'APS-C' sized sensors and combines light weight with a very low price tag for an optically-stabilised lens. On the EOS 400D and 40D cameras we used for our tests, its focal length range is equivalent to 88-400mm on a 35mm camera. It's a fairly slow lens - and this is apparent in the viewfinder when you're shooting. . .
