Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens RRP: £329.99 This Canon 55-250mm IS II is one of Canon’s most popular lenses because it’s super sharp, focuses very close, has a perfect telephoto zoom range, has Image Stabilization for sharp hand-held photos in dim light, and is small, light and inexpensive. You can pay more to get a lens that works better while being rained-on or blasted in a sandstorm while being beaten around by a news photographer, or that works on expensive full-frame cameras, but even if you pay more for something like a 70-200mm f/4 L IS, you’ll have a bigger lens to carry around, it won’t be any sharper, and it won’t have as broad a zoom range! There are many reasons this 55-250 is among Canon’s best selling lenses. This 55-250 requires you to move a switch on the lens to get from auto to manual focusing; you can’t just grab the focus ring. The reasons you might want to pay more than twice as much for another lens with a more limited zoom range are if you shoot a 35mm or full-frame camera on which this lens won’t work, if you need instant manual focus override (you have to move a switch to get to manual focus), or if the plastic lens mount isn’t tough enough for you. Otherwise, this lens is sharp, light inexpensive and works great. This new 55-250mm IS II lens has the same optics as the previous 55-250mm IS lens, with slightly different cosmetics. Compatibility As an EF-s lens, it will only work on Canon’s APS-C cameras. It will not work on 35mm cameras, it will not work on old 1.3x cameras, and it certainly won’t work on full-frame digital.

This inexpensive Canon 55-250mm IS II offers exceptional optics in an inexpensive package, perfect for school and family sports shooting. For the price, this Canon 55-250mm IS EF-s is my top lens suggestion for everyone on a budget who needs a tele lens for Canon digital. The older Canon 75-300mm telephotos without IS cost a little less, but since I know how critical IS is to sharp photos in real-world photography, I’d spend the little extra for this 55-250mm. Even if IS is a mystery to you, the fact that this lens focuses so closely is another reason I can suggest it so strongly. Canon makes no junk, and hey, if you break the plastic mount and if Canon won’t fix it under warranty (try first), you can buy another and still be out far less money than I paid for my one 70-200mm f/4 IS L. 100% GENUINE & BRAND NEW in Original Box Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4.0-5.6 IS MARK 2 MK II Lens The all-purpose telephoto zoom for EF-S mount EOS cameras.
