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

Review Date: Aug 10, 2009 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros:
Cons:

I was looking for a lens to continue where the 15-55 kit lens left off. Thinking that a Canon lens with AF and IS would cost the proverbial arm and leg, my search centred on Sigma and Tamron until, out of curiosity, I looked at the Canon website and found this little gem.

I have been using it for about three weeks mainly at Horse Trial Events and am absolutely delighted with the results. It has also been used for my other passions, flowers and wildlife to excellent effect. Even with the f4-5.6 limitation and the focus hunting problems in low light, for the money, it is almost impossible to fault it.

Pros: For the price, it is extremely hard to beat this lens. It is light to carry around and is a good general purpose lens. The picture quality is excellent.
Cons:
Apart from the lump of lens sticking out the front when on full 250mm focal length, none.
