EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS
The EF-S 55–250mm IS lens is the lightest weight long-range zoom option for EOS Rebel, EOS 20D thru 60D, and EOS 7D users. With coverage equivalent to a 90–400mm lens (when the 1.6x "crop factor" is considered), it's a very cost-effective and practical way to get into long-distance shooting. Sports, outdoor candids, details of buildings or construction, or even outdoor surveillance are just some of its possible applications. It’s also – by a wide margin – Canon's least expensive telephoto zoom with Image Stabilization (up to 4 stops correction).
- Excellent choice for documentary coverage of any subject or scene that can’t easily be approached at close distances
- A very lightweight lens, that’s rarely a challenge to combine in the camera bag with a standard zoom to provide a full range of coverage
- Very strong close-focusing performance: closest focus distance 3.6 feet (1.2m); 0.31x magnification means you can fill the frame with a subject only 3x2 inches (73x49mm) in size
Note: Canon EF-S lenses are exclusively for compatible APS-C sensor cameras (EOS 20D through 60D, EOS 7D, and all versions of EOS digital Rebel), and cannot be mounted or used on other Canon EOS digital or film SLR bodies
