The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS is a tiny lens with a great performance potential. The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Lens is the all-purpose telephoto zoom for EOS digital SLR cameras. Its 4-stop Image Stabilizer (IS) with automatic panning detection effectively suppresses blur in low light. The resolution is very good across the range. Chromatic aberrations are basically a non-issue. The level of distortions remain moderate. The autofocus micro-motor is pretty fast and silent.
The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Lens is compatible with all the EOS APS-C sub-phrame digital SLR cameras including: 350D, 400D, 450D, 20D, 30D, and 40D. Please note the Canon EF-S lens does not works with the Canon full-frame digital SLR cameras ( EOS 5D, 1Ds III).

Image Stabilizer with automatic panning detection
To combat the effects of camera shake, the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS incorporates Canon’s latest 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. Automatic panning detection automatically turns off the Image Stabilizer in either the horizontal or vertical direction when following moving subjects.
UD lens element
The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS employs a Canon UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) lens element to suppress the effects of secondary chromatic aberrations – for crisp, sharp, high-contrast images without fringing throughout the zoom range.
Super Spectra Coatings
Canon’s Super Spectra coatings combat ghosting and flare by absorbing light that may be reflected off digital camera sensors or internal lens elements. Super Spectra coatings also help ensure accurate colour balance and sharp, high-contrast results.
Circular aperture diaphragm
For shots taken at large aperture, a circular aperture diaphragm creates smooth, even bokeh (background blur) – ideal for emphasising subjects shot against distracting backgrounds.
Only environmentally-friendly, lead-free glass is used in the construction of the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS.
