Canon EF-S 55 - 250 mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens (Black, Telephoto Zoom Lens) Price: Rs.11875

The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens is an affordable telephoto zoom lens with peak performance that delivers high quality image. The Canon lens is constructed using lead-free glass with 12 elements in 10 groups. The Super Spectra coatings prevent ghosting and flare by absorbing light that reflects from the camera sensor. The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens has a circular diaphragm with 7 diaphragm blades that let the light pass through to hit the sensor.

The maximum viewing angle of the telephoto zoom lens is 27° 50'. This EF-S lens is suitable for all the Canon EOS DSLR cameras. You can effectively suppress the blur in low light with 4-stop image stabilization that allows the use of shutter speed up to 4 times. The automatic panning detection automatically turns the image stabilizer off when you are panning horizontally or vertically while following moving subjects.

The focal length equivalent of 88-400 mm in 35 mm format serves all your photographic needs. The minimum aperture of the Canon EF-S telephoto zoom lens is 22 - 32 mm. The maximum magnification of the lens is 0.31x at 250 mm. The filter attachment size of the Canon lens is 58 mm. The closest focusing distance of the Canon telephoto zoom lens is 1.1 m for you to carefully capture the best moments. The AF/MF button on the lens allows you to choose between the automatic and manual focus.

The dimensions of the Canon lens are 70 mm x 108 mm in diameter and length, and the lens weighs just 390 g for easy portability. The distance indicator on the Canon lens directs you to whether to take left or right to focus closer. The Micro motor in the lens helps in auto focus. The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens is a good buy for you to experiment in various ways.

A Well Focused Image!

I got the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS from America and have been using it for over 6 months. After experiencing the clarity and using the zoom of the lens it has been hard to switch back to my old lens.
Pros
-Long Distance Zoom
-High Clarity
Cons
-Heavy
-Does not fit in a traditional Canon DSLR Camera Case.
-High Memory Usage
Overall I have found it to be very useful in clciking pictures during my trips.
I would recommend this to any amateur photographer or traveller.
I hope you found my review useful

Nice budget zoom lens

Pros:
* Longer zoom. (88-408mm Crop sensor effective focal length)
* Image is sharp enough. (better than 18-55 kit, though pixel peppers wiil be dissapointed)
* Nice & broad manual focus ring
* Almost circular aperture give nice & blending bokeh (OOF blur)
* IS is good.
* Affordable price

Cons:
* Rotating front element. (cumbersome for CPL filter)
* AF hunts in low light (often)
* f/4 will limit lowlight handheld photography. (Tripod must)
* Closest focusing distance is 1.1 Meter. (forget Macro)

Though overall good BUDGET lens. Pros outweighs Cons. Buy it, if you are short in budget. But advanced amateurs will not be satisfied.

Must Buy

3 days and lens was home, collected by my flat owner.

Pros:
1. Lens complements the 18-55 stock
2. Its 58 mm so all your filters can work on this if they were working on 18 55 which was also 58 mm.
3. Better Built than 18-55.. this one feels heavy.
4. IS is also awesome... basically it works that's the whole point of it.
5. Cheap( sort of pretty affordable if you are just dipping into photography ) if you ask me.
Cons:
1. Could have sold it with ET-60 Lens hood.
2. And another filter.
3. Not for super serious photographer...
4. picture softens at lower apertures at 250 mm

Final Verdict:
55-250 is a Must buy if its your second lens after 18-55 mm. In India if you go for 50 Prime.. I might suggest instead go for this as people here are very conscious about being photographed.

PS: 50 mm 1.8 is good for low light and potrait. and sick cheap...
next buy.

nice affordable lens!!

You can get the pros and cons in most of the reviews. they are quite right and sufficient.
For the photographers on a budget ... or rather those who dont want to take it as a profession and dont have illgotten sums to just splurge around... this lens is the best affordable telephoto zoom lens.
At 250mm on a cropped sensor it goes to 250x1.6 i.e 400mm. that is ok! surely not enough for birding but fine for nice zoom shots.
you know... for a novice a telephoto means going into the subject till he is oohing and aahing!!
but that lasts for just a few days. telephoto in photography is more about composition and 250mm works just fine for that.
ok! i tend to use 18-55 more. maybe it is more "in the range" for city photography and in the room shots. but a 55-250 makes sense when you go visiting.
Also the last "within budget" lens ... the 50mm 1.8 is also recommented. These 3 are more than sufficient for all the photos you will most likely take. Add to that cheap (non automatic) extention tubes and screw up lens from delhi and you have just about everything.
so long and happy clicking!!

Does what it claims to do.

At the price point it is available, even if it does half of what it claims to do, it is a five star material.
