Fast and quiet
I bought this lens to supplement my 28-55mm lens on my Rebel T7i. I was amazed at how fast and quiet the focus is. I'm an amateur, so I may not have the closest eye, but the lens really works well!

not good for video taping
I bought this camera because of the high def video and auto focusing. but when i used this big zoom lens, the video was constantly auto focusing and making clicking noises which was heard when I played back the video....not good....but as far as taking a photo, it was just "ok"....still has a grainy look....photo attached

Fast and quiet

I bought this lens to supplement my 28-55mm lens on my Rebel T7i. I was amazed at how fast and quiet the focus is. I'm an amateur, so I may not have the closest eye, but the lens really works well!

Great lens

Lightweight and pretty easy to use. simple to carry. Not one of those monster lens. The 55mm to 250mm is really nice. I do mainly landscape photos so it suits my needs as a one in all lens. AF works fine but may struggle, of course, if your shooting a thin bridge 7 miles away or thin tree branches. I don't have much to compare it with but I'm glad I got this instead of a bulky one.

I just love this lens!

This is actually my "go to" lens unless I'm using my camera indoors. I can get fantastic close-ups, as you can see. I've been using it for almost four years now, and couldn't be happier!

Versatile and Sharp

I've had this for a few months and am very happy with the quality and value. Fine pics for a price that doesn't break the bank.

Best Lens in the Box

I received this lens with my T5i camera along with the EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS STM. I hardly ever use the latter lens outdoors. The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II to me is a standard lens for all around use outdoors. I am a nature photographer, especially birds. I added a 2x telephoto extender to the lens and it is very difficult to focus manually and still get good shots of birds in flight. However, without the extender, I have had great success with the auto focus and have not used a tripod yet. Hand held shots are easy and come out great. I have also used this lens to shoot wedding photos. Mine came out better than the professional photographers. Maybe because I knew what I was shooting. I highly recommend this lens. It is one that should be in everyone's bag. The price is right and this is a great lens.

For the $, you can't beat the quality!

Sure, this lens is not pro quality. But then again, you are not paying a pro quality price eather. Personally, I love this lens. I have a Canon Rebel t1i that I use this lens with and I will tell you, this lens gives me more than I expected. I get excelent pictures with this lens. Photography is my hobby that I am very passionate about. And I do put a lot of $ into it. (I have a Pixma Pro 9500 Mark II that I develop my pictures with. So I am not a cheep guy.) I have a lot better built and more expensive lenses. This one is my favorite. It is light and gives me the shots I am looking for. The construction is were they went light to get the price so low. However, if you take care of your equiptment like I do, it will last a long time.

Ya get what ya pay for

No, its not an "L" series lens, so it wouldnt be fair to compare it to one. Lets do it any way, dollar for dollar the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS blows away any "L" lens. Sharpness, contrast, overall quality sure the "L" lens is far superior, but look how much extra you have to pay to get that. Long story short. For 4 times the price, the "L" isnt four times the lens!!!!!!!!!!

Excelent product

I received the lens yesterday and have been testing it in all the ways I can imagine. The auto-focus works great, it's fast and accurate. The sharpness is outstanding, got super sharp images at very low speeds. I compared the images against a lens without the Image Stabilizer and the difference is incredible . I was holding the camera very carefully while using the lens without the IS and then I took the same picture with IS and holding the camera with shaking hands intentionally. The pictures with IS were much better, awesome feature. The zoom is perfect for mid ranged shoots, I guess I will need a larger one for shooting further objectives. I made some moon pictures too, the full zoom deployed covered an area of a bit more than 3 x 4,5 degrees of sky. The moon appeared a bit small in the pictures but after processing the images they turn to be very good, with the main craters very sharp and with good contrast. I will keep making astronomical pictures with this product, I don't doubt there will be great satisfactions with deep space objects and long exposure pictures. The body of the zoom is light weighted, I was very surprised by this because at first I thought it could be something to distrust but the quality is not affected by it and it's even a good thing since it's easier to handle it. It can't be easier to use it, there is no need to learn, just point and shot. All tests done with a EOS Digital Rebel XTi.

Don't Let the Construction Fool You

Don't let the plastic lens mount and entry-level construction fool you, this lens produces high quality images and a very low price. I have some "L" glass for more serious work but for kids' athletics, trips to the zoo, and for following my granddaughters around the back yard this lens is perfect. Sharp with good contrast, its also light weight with an excellent implementation of Canon's Image Stabilization. It doesn't take up much space in my backpack so I carry it every day. This is really a great Canon lens for the money. I shoot it on a Canon EOS 60D and the combination is just about perfect for everyday shooting.
