Canon Lens 55-250mm EF-S f/4-5.6 IS

Compact and lightweight, the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS offers the longest zoom range in the EF-S series to date. The 88-400mm equivalent focal length opens up new framing possibilities for owners of EF-S mount cameras shooting wildlife, sports and travel photography. Optical quality is assured through a UD element, which minimises chromatic aberrations that could otherwise cause reduced contrast and colour fringing. Lens hood ET-60 sold separately.

  • Standard and telephoto zoom lens for D-SLR cameras – 55-250mm focal range; fast f/4-5.6 aperture.
  • Canon’s latest optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology provides up to 4-stop compensation for image blur caused by camera shake and slow shutter speeds.
  • High Precision aspherical element for outstanding image quality.
  • Circular aperture helps create an even background blur when depth of field is minimised.
  • Automatic panning detection makes it easier for photographers to track wildlife and other moving subjects.
  • Super Spectra coatings to suppress flare and ghosting.
