Features

Lightweight and inexpensive, the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM offers a great range of features and excellent image quality for its class, making it the perfect entry-level telephoto lens. Compatible with APS-C format Canon EOS DSLR cameras, this compact telephoto provides an extremely useful focal length range that perfectly complements most general purpose zoom lenses. As most general purpose zooms have an upper end focal length of 55mm, the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM picks up at just the right place, with a focal length range that reaches from 55mm to 250mm. One of the standout features on this lens is a Stepping Motor driven autofocus, which is beautifully smooth, fast and silent. This makes it a great choice for both stills and video, especially if you’re using Movie Servo continuous AF mode. Meanwhile, its Image Stabiliser helps to reduce camera shake, allowing you to create sharp images that are sure to impress.
