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.

I had a great experience with Amazon, in ordering and receiving my product timely. I absolutely love my EF-S 55-250 Lens. It take great close up shots. I always wanted to know the difference in getting great close up shots, now I know!

Verified Purchase
I purchased the 55-250 for my wife and I must say I am impressed with its performance. Although its not a fast lens (like my 70-200 2.8), the lens is very sharp. If you're looking for a good consumer grade lens (paid $260) and mostly take shots of stationary people or objects, its worth it. My wife loves the lens. Now if you like to shoot sports, this is not the lens for you.
The build of the 55-250 is very good (for its price). I was expecting it to be somewhat flimsy (since it has the plastic mount), but its actually not bad.
I would definitely recommend it for someone who wants a "walk around" lens with good reach. If you get this lens, you may want to also get a wider one to complement it. Have not tried the 18-55 IS since my wife already has a Tamron 28-75. That lens is very very good. This review is not about that lens so i wont discuss it.

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.
