Item Description

Designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology, this Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Optical Image Stabilizer Telephoto Zoom Lens is incredibly compact and lightweight. You'll love this Canon EF-S Lens as the high zoom ratio is equivalent to a focal length of an 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses). The image stabilizer effect of this Canon Telephoto Lens is equivalent to a shutter speed about 4 stops faster than the same size lens without Image Stabilizer. This Canon EF-S Lens also uses a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. Get this Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Optical Image Stabilizer Telephoto Zoom Len for excellent image quality.

From the Manufacturer


Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


Lightweight and compact; affordably priced; very usable manual focus capability; optical image stabilization for sharper handheld photos at slow shutter speeds.


All-plastic construction, which is less durable than metal; sharpness falls off at 250mm where it is likely to see a lot of use.

Bottom Line

A lightweight, compact design coupled with its stabilized 400mm-equivalent focal length zoom and affordable price make the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS a versatile lens for entry-level shooters and amateurs on a budget.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 189reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great lens This lens is superb. When you buy with the package (2 IS lenses and the T2i camera), the effective price of the lens is very good, and much better than the lens bought separately. 06/02/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great lens for the money. This lens is pretty awsome. It is fast focusing and gives me the ability to capture shot a long range.A must have for anyone who takes pictures with a DSLR camera. 09/15/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful! Glad I got this lens with the Rebel XSi. Great for taking pictures both indoors and out. I have received many comments on posted pictures taken with this lens. Love it! 12/02/2009
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great upgrade to my Canon Rebel camera.I was really impressed at the picture quality and zoom capabilities.Decent price also! 06/10/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Lens! This is a great lens! I love it, love it, love it!! Perfect match for my camera, perfect fit for me! Walmart had great service as usual. Very happy with the lens, recommend to everyone. 06/12/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by awesome deal i love my canon camera and this lens makes it even more enjoyable!! 08/19/2010
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good Lens with good price on the bundle In general terms I'm not an expert but so far (4 days) is amazing. 12/27/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by GREAT LENS (BUY WITH COMBO) I got this lens for half price when i bought it with the camera bundle.It is a great lens for recording from far away. I used it to record a school play. And its the first time I didnt have to sit in the front row. Just sit as far away possible. Actually the shortest part of this lens is not suitable for a room - you actually have to get back as far as possible.I highly suggest this as a second lens. Get it as a bundle.The IS means it will zoom faster than other lenses.I am really glad I have this lens, I could not imagine shooting with the 18-55 alone. 12/28/2010
