Technical Details


Product Description

Bring your photographic subjects closer with this Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Image Stabilizer Telephoto Zoom Lens. It is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology and is compact and light. 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). The image stabilizer effect is 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. It also uses a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. Filter Size - 58mm Max. Diameter - x Length 2.8 in. x 4.3 in./70 x 108mm (maximum lens length) Weight - 13.8 oz./390g

I was looking for a telephoto that had the stabilization and auto focus feature for my Canon Rebel T3i.
I had just purchased my camera and it came with the standard lens of 18mm-55mm. Which is a great lens for pictures that I can get pretty close to. But I needed something that if I was out in nature, I could get some decent shots with a zoom. Not one to want to disturb nature doing its thing.

This lens for the price is perfect, a little noisy when using the auto focus, but that is a huge lens its trying to work with.
The price was perfect. I also bought the 2 year year protection plan.

The squeezey bulb air cleaner is awesome. Love the rubber hood. Nice to have an extra set of filters. Now I have enough for both lenses. The cleaner brush is 'eh, i would rather use the bulb and a cleaning cloth, (one comes with this kit too). Extra lens keeper too!!

If your looking for a canon lens with auto focus and stabilization feature at a decent price. Get this one. You won't be disappointed.

I brought this as a second lens for my Canon EOS 60D (great camera and kit lens!) to bring along on my first safari in Kenya this spring. I didn't want to spend a ton of money it, or rent a lens, as I knew it could easily get broken or stolen, but I also wanted something to get more reach than the kit lens. Boy howdy, do you need image stabilization, who is anyone kidding when they advise you that you won't? You'll want to take photos AS YOU APPROACH certain groups of animals, because the van may startle them and they'll be on the move, not to mention that all the roads are incredibly bumpy and it takes a moment to actually stop bouncing. Birds? Leopards? Honey badgers? They don't wait for the van to stop. You'll also be out at dawn and you'll be out at sunset, when the light is a little low, and for those times you really need the IS, too.

For a safari you'll ALWAYS want more reach, there's no way around that, but if debating between this and the slightly cheaper one that reaches slightly farther without the IS, no question, hands down, absolutely get this one. As for the rest of the kit, I didn't use it much but for the lens cleaner. There's so much dust in the air that you need to cover up your camera as best you can while driving, and then be sure to check the lens now and then for dust, too. Good luck and happy shooting!

I had bought this same lens (by itself, not with the kit) from a local retail store for over $300, but soon found this kit on Amazon. Being almost half as much as the one I had already bought, I decided to take a chance and order this one (since it was such a bargain I was also able to order the tripod I wanted). I received the package by the end of the week and immediately compared it to the lens I still had from the retail store. I could find very little that was different between the two lenses. In fact, I could only find two perceptible differences. The first is that the lens cap that came with the lens was the inset clip cap instead of the thinner cap with the release clips on the side of the cap which came with the one from the retail store. The only other thing I found was that the focusing and zoom rings seemed to be stiffer than the one from the retail store. They are getting looser the more I use the lens though. Other than these slight differences, everything else I could find was the same. The kit included with it just makes it all the much better. It isn't super high quality stuff, but when you are getting the lens for so much less it will be hard to complain. I highly recommend this!

I'm not a photography expert, but this worked great for me. I was concerned buying an non-warrantied version would be a problem without a warranty etc.. but after almost a year the lens has been flawless for me. The bundle stuff looks great but is mostly junk which we eventually threw away.

This is a versatile lens to take everywhere. For the price, it does amazing photos. Photos do come out too dark in indoor low light areas and I find there is a bit heavier red tint than I like but again.... for the price it is a great lens.

Lens works great! The extras have all worked very well, except for the lens keeper, which has already fallen off.

I'm not much of a photographer so a wanted a decent telephoto for my canon rebel with autofocus, no issues, and as inexpensive as this type of lens could be. This one fit the bill and I've been happy with it so far. It has worked fine. I bought the package deal because it was the same price as the lens alone. I like the cap holder, the soft case and use the rubber lens shade (wrong name). I have not tried any of the other pieces so I cannot comment on them. Overall, I'm very satisfied and would buy again. However, not being a true photographer I cannot really comment on the lens itself other than it works for what I wanted.
