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)

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

Bought The lens for 10K.... have queries ?

Today i got this product , but the packing does not seems to be original it was opened before and the box is white which is covered with red color custom canon stickers. I think this is the kit lens that comes with Camera. The Original box is different as per my knowledge ..have got 2 lens(55mm 1.8 II) from canon and it came with original canon box . Should i return the product ? I will try to register in canon edge and will write a review again

This is the lens which is been taken out 1100D box and been sold as separate lens by WSRetail which is official seller of Flipkart. Seriously did...

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!!

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:...

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.

Good Lens- But without a Cannon Box

Got this product a day before the estimated delivery date and the service was awesome with an equally awesome discount. But the only problem is that the lens came in a plastic cover without the original canon box. It made me think and research to find out whether the product was genuine or not. S...

Excellent, no fraud

Prize is low when u compare ur product prize to canon website but don't worry this lens is 100% genuine. This is because this lens also come with canon 1100D and1200D as kit lens. This lens which u buy, it's kits lens not a separate lens. But there is no deference between this two, so just enjoy.... (View complete review)
