By MyBeesWax TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 16, 2010
The Canon EF-S 55-250mm is a perfect choice if you shoot mostly wide angle shots and don't want to blow a ton of money on a telephoto zoom lens that you only use occasionally. This lens offers you reasonably sharp photos at a very, very good price. Here's a more in-depth evaluation of this lens.

- Sharpness
The sharpness is on par with that of the 18-55mm kit lens. Although the lens is not quite pro-grade, it can, in the right conditions, impress even an avid pixel-peeper. For a budget lens, it's really about as sharp as they come. This lens will probably satisfy all but the most fastidious of prosumers.

Hey, don't take my word for it; seek out professional review sites that show you a 100% crop of pictures taken with this lens and then decide for yourself.

- Chromatic Aberration (CA)
In bright sunlight, where chromatic aberration is most pronounced, the chromatic aberration on this lens is barely noticeable and probably imperceptible to the untrained eye. In more even lighting, this lens shows no signs of CA.

- Auto-Focus (AF)
The auto-focus is fast enough for still subjects, but for very fast-moving subjects, it's a hit-or-miss. I gave this lens a good workout shooting cheetahs running close to their top speeds at the Animal Ark, Reno, NV (OT: cheetahs can run at speeds in excess of 70 mph). Most of my shots came out blurry (and that's not due to motion blur, mind you) because the auto-focus wasn't fast enough.

Like the kit lens, the auto-focus has trouble in lowlight conditions. It also has trouble with surfaces that lack texture. The motor whirs back and forth trying to lock on to a focus. It can be a little annoying at times!

- Image Stabilization (IS)
The image stabilization is amazing, even at 250mm.

OMG I purchased this lens on e-Bay new for $199.00 ("Buy it Now"). It arrived today. This is one light weight and incredibly sharp lens. Also, the image colors are vivid and true. With the IMAGE STABILIZER engaged I can get super sharp images at 250mm, with lens wide open, and the shutter speed at 1/30th of a second. And I'm a 71 year old man.

I'm crazy about Amazon.com. They are really reliable, their merchandise is usually competitively priced, and I like their return policy. But I do shop.

SPECIAL NOTE; Another reviewer writes that using the Canon 58mm tread diameter 250D Closeup Filter (under $100.00), this same zoom lens becomes a fantastically sharp macro lens. I'm going to go for it next month - after my Social Security Check comes in. And yes, I will check the price on Amazon.com first.

My sister in law has one of these and let me borrow it a few years ago. I decided to get one of my own this year. I've experimented using it and I can tell you that the autofocus takes "some gettin' use to". I can be slightly off or dead on. If the subject you are shooting is standing still and some ways off, you are better off using manual focus. It's a plastic lens so if you're going to bang it around, you better be careful. Here's two shots I took in the last few weeks. The pleated woodpecker is a bit too much for a feeder that normally serves sparrows, but it is and example of the autofocus, the recent 'blue' moon is an example of the manual focus.

First of all, this lens in often paired with a similar 18-55 mm lens in a "kit" with a camera body and sometimes a few other "doo-dads". That means it is going to be an average lens for an average user. A professional photographer might dismiss it, but keep in mind that one of his or her lens can easily cost more that the above mentioned "kit", including a bag, two lenses, and the camera body.

On the other hand, if want a functional, budgetary lens that will do most of what you might reasonable want, this one is worth considering.

Pro
- good zoom range
- image stabilization - can really make the difference in whether you get the shot you want or not.
- 55mm picks right up where the 18-55 leaves off and is very close (in range) to the 50mm lens often used for portrait type photography
- zooming up to 250mm will let you sit on one end of the deck and capture a hummingbird flitting around the feeder on the other end.
- zooming from 55mm to 250mm is smooth with no tight or jerky spots
- I already mentioned cost. If, on the other hand, you've got money to burn and want bragging rights on top of that, you can spend as much as $35,000 on a single lens with a wider range and lower f-stop.

Con
- If you plan on printing wall size posters, you may see some optical and chromatic aberration (in non-geek, not totally perfect image)For viewing on your typical computer monitor or printing 8x10's, it's really nothing to worry about unless you being paid to photograph a wedding and dealing with momzilla or bridezilla.
- It does require a reasonable amount of light for a good shot but much of that is offset by the built in image stabilization.

Love this lens. I have taken some really great shots with it. I am a professional photographer and this lens gives me great depth of field and the bokeh is really nice. I highly recommend this lens.
