Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS STM
Written by Gordon Laing
Canon’s EF-S 55-250mm is an affordable telephoto zoom designed for owners of mainstream cropped-bodies; as an EF-S model, it’s not compatible with full-frame bodies. The EF-S 55-250mm picks-up where the standard 18-55mm kit lens stops, extending the equivalent coverage to a maximum of 400mm. This is the second edition of the lens which now features STM focusing that’s quicker and quieter than before for movies, along with a slightly closer minimum focusing distance and a smoother seven bladed iris. Like its predecessor there’s still Image Stabilisation to iron-out the wobbles. A great telephoto zoom for those on a budget.
