Product Description

Kit Includes:
♦ 1) Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Lens
♦ 2) Vivitar 58mm UV Glass Filter
♦ 3) Precision Design ET-60 Lens Hood
♦ 4) LensPen Lens Cleaning System
♦ 5) Precision Design 6-Piece Lens & Digital SLR Cleaning Kit

The Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS Telephoto Zoom Lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining compactness and lightness, in response to demands of photographers. This high zoom ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses), and the image stabilizer effect equivalent to a shutter speed about 4 stops faster than the same size lens without Image Stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you could formerly hold a 250mm lens steadily was 1/250th of a second, with Canon's 4-stop stabilization correction, you could hand-hold at shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second.

This Vivitar UV Filter is a fine-weather filter that is designed to optimize your photography experience. UV filters block out unwanted ultraviolet light and prevents the UV "fogging/haze" effect". Protect your lens from scratches and dust.

The LensPen with its unique design makes cleaning your lens fast, simple and effective. On one end, a retractable soft brush sweeps dust and loose particles away from the glass. On the other end, a special dry cleaning compound is used to gently remove fingerprints and spots.

The Precision Design ET-60 Lens Hood is primarily designed to prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens by extending and shading the end of the lens. In addition, since the end of the lens is extended, you also get the added benefit of some extra protection from accidental impact.

The lens is strong enough to get exceptional clarity and detail at a significant distance, but doesn't overwhelm the close up shots. It is exactly what I was looking for. The company over-delivered by shipping the product immediately and exceeded my expectations on quality and delivery.

We use these accessories constantly with our new camera. It's a great starter pack. The lens is great for everyday pictures. We had to purchase another telephoto lens for sports pictures because our children are older and play on full size fields, but this lens is great for pictures where the subjects are not very far away. The cleaning kit is useful and we have used the filter several times on sunny days. We were happy with the pictures taken using the filter.

Verified Purchase
This was a Christmas present for my niece and the look on her face when I saw her using it was priceless. I think she is glad I was able to help my nephew in law pick out a telephoto lens for her. The reason for choosing this lens is due to the IS capability. My niece is new to digital cameras and I thought this one would be the one for her. I do believe she is pleased.
