The Canon EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 STM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens is an incredible all-purpose long-range tool for EF-S mount EOS cameras.
Powerful telephoto performance
Affording you a wide range of long focal lengths (equivalent to 88-400mm in a 35mm format), the EF-S 55-250 mm Lens is both compact and affordable for a lens of its calibre. It covers a great variety of telephoto scenarios and requirements, all within one lens.
Now you can get up close and personal with subjects from a distance, and be assured of photographs with depth and clarity. The circular aperture diaphragm works brilliantly at large apertures for smooth, even blur – perfect for emphasizing subjects shot against distracting backgrounds. STM silent focus
With Canon's STM silent focus mechanism, the EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto lens operates smoothly and silently for quick and efficient focusing. Whether you're shooting images or movies, you can be sure of seamless continuous focusing and fluid, accurate autofocus. The Canon stepping motor also means that you can zoom in and out silently when shooting video without the zoom being picked up by the internal microphone. Stability for portfolio-worthy shots
The Canon EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 Zoom Lens achieves a minimal focusing distance of only 1.1 metres between you and your subject.
With a four-stop image stabiliser featuring automatic panning detection, it combats camera shake and effectively suppresses blur in low light. You can therefore use shutter speeds up to four times slower without a noticeable increase in image blur.
This superior focusing mechanism is invaluable when capturing distant subjects, keeping things sharp and compelling and making it a superior choice for sports, nature or even portraiture.
What's more, the panning detection also automatically turns off image stabilization in either the horizontal or vertical direction when the camera is following moving subjects so you capture things just as you see them.
A Canon UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) lens element is used to suppress the effects of secondary chromatic aberrations, so you'll get crisper, sharper images with excellent contrast, without fringing occurring throughout the zoom range.
The E-FS 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS Telephoto Lens also employs Canon's Super Spectra coatings to cut out ghosting and flare. It absorbs light that might be reflected off digital camera sensors or internal lens elements. The coating also ensures more precise colour balance and sharper results with superior contrast.
Canon use only environmentally-friendly, lead-free glass in the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II, combining performance quality with progressive materials.
