Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EFS 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras(Non-US Product) (Camera)
I bought this lens to take to Africa because I knew I would need to take longer distance shots than the 18-55 Lens that came with the camera can offer. I got a lot of great shots and am very pleased with the performance. Like a lot of reviews on here I found it difficult at times to get used to the auto focus, it is kind of slow. I missed a few shots of things going by quickly, but I knew it would take this larger lens longer to focus. I am very please with the quality of the lens, the photos I took, and the ease of use of this lens for someone with no photography experience. I highly recommend it as your next step up to get long distance shots.
