      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Must Buy

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

    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.
    1. Could have sold it with ET-60 Lens hood.
    2. And another filter.
    3. No...

    Be careful about the lens you buy

    Few points to watch out for

    1) If the 55-250 mm selector band is in silver colour, you are buying the IS (MK I) version, not IS II (MK II). Most sellers in internet (including Flipkart) are selling MK I lens for around 8k to 10k. This model was discontinued in 2011.

    2) IS II (MK II) is all black and does not have a silver band (instead numbers are etched in white on the black background). Secondly, on the rim of the lens "IS II" is mentioned. Thirdly, there is no lettering for "Image Stabil...

    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.
    -Long Distance Zoom
    -High Clarity
    -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 ...

    One of the best Canon lense in economy range.

    I am using this telephoto lense for the past 4 months. The lense is pretty fast when compared with the other lenses of its range. The IS makes every single penny worth for this product.
    The autofocus is very quick and extermly accurate. The lense dosent comes with a USM (as its in the economy range), however, I have used this lense to shoot wild life and considerably , it did a wonderful job without disturbing/grabbing much attention from the wild life.
    I would recommend this product for the ...

    Tts not true

    The lense shown in the picture is not IS II (Image stabilizer version II) lense. It is the only IS (first generation) lense which was introduced back in 2009.
