Canon EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS Review

Key features

The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS is a lightweight camera lens with a long range of focal length. This is the first EF-S lens from Canon that breaches the length of 85mm and competes well with the other zoom lenses. There are two rings in this lens : a smaller focus one that is manual, and a properly sized zoom ring.

The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS offers autofocus through its Micro Motor. The autofocus is slower compared to some of the other lenses but makes up on accuracy with its narrow aperture. Being small and light, it is easy to carry in your camera bag and does not eat up too much space.

Introduction

In the domain of cameras and accessories, Canon has always been a name to reckon with. With its EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens, Canon has made photography a delight, especially for those who need advanced lenses for a professional purpose.

The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS can be used with or without the lens hood, allowing you more options for different types of photography. The lens is available with optional accessories like a pouch, a cap and a rear dust cap. It can be used with the Canon APS-C/1.6x FOVCF bodies and is easy to handle for most photographers.

What are the functionalities ?

The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS allows you to change the focal length by narrowing the maximum aperture. One of the advantages of this lens is that it can maintain the focal length even when the aperture is changed. The following focal lengths are possible on this lens when the aperture value is changed : 55mm for f/4.0; 74mm for 4/4.5, 96mm for f/5.0 and 154mm for f/5.6. This feature is extremely useful when photography is done in manual exposure mode.

One of the most important features of the lens is the 4-stop Image Stabilizer with automatic panning detection in both vertical and horizontal modes. When the IS feature is on, you only need to press the camera shutter halfway to get a steady view through the camera viewfinder. When the IS feature is on, there is also a slight clicking sound that you can hear.

While the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS is extremely lightweight, the build quality could be improved. You get that feeling of plastic when you touch the lens. On the positive side, this lens has a retracting feature and thus it occupies a lesser space than those that are non-expanding.

How is the image quality ?

The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS produces sharp images thanks to its UD glass lens. The image stabilizer allows you to get a steady view of your subject and click lifelike images easily.

Conclusion: should I buy it ?

The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS is an affordable product and can be used by most photographers. It produces superior image quality thanks to its UD glass lens, which is able to correct the chromatic aberrations. At 240 CAD, it is an affordable option built for performance and stability.

  • Pros:
    Lightweight retractable lens feature telephoto lens and image stabilizer
  • Cons:
    Slight effort required in removing or attaching the hood plastic body and minor barrel distortion
Our score:
4.5 / 5
