NOTE: This is an "EF-S" Series Lens and is compatible only with Digital SLR's that accept EF-S lenses like the EOS Digital Rebel , Digital Rebel XT, Digital Rebel XTi, Rebel XSi, EOS 20D, EOS 30D, EOS40D and similar.
Do NOT Use With the EOS-5D, EOS-1D, EOS-1DS, EOS 1DS-Mark III Or Any Other EOS Camera.

This telephoto zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining compactness and lightness, in response to demands of photographers. This high zoom ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses), and the image stabilizer effect equivalent to a shutter speed about 4 stops faster than the same size lens without Image Stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you could formerly hold a 250mm lens steadily was 1/250th of a second, with Canon's 4-stop stabilization correction, you could hand-hold at shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second. It also uses a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. This EF-S telephoto lens with great features delivers excellent performance at an affordable price for all photographers.

5 out of 5 stars   Good value
By Frugal Flasher (Toronto, Canada) October 11, 2012
Review submitted for Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS (CN55250ISB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Cons:
Other Comments: For the price, this lens is good value. It's not a low-light lens, but the IS does a pretty good job at slower shutter speeds. Auto-focus seems quick. Image quality is good, even compared to my L lens. It is super light, which I really appreciate when on a hike. Overall it is a keeper.

5 out of 5 stars   Multipurpose Dependable Lens
By DD (Cochise County, AZ) April 29, 2012
Review submitted for Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS (CN55250ISB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Consistent Output, Nice usage range, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Durable
Cons: I'll try to think of one
Other Comments: I find this lens ro be very versitile. I can switch from a beautiful sunset to an insect scurrying across the desert without switching lenses. I had a more powerful lens that was great for magnification, but I really needed to use a tripod to get good pictures. This one is multiputpose. I only switch lenses if I am really doing a study.

5 out of 5 stars   A great all-around telephoto lens!
By Annie Lou (Carrollton, GA) June 01, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II (Stabilized) Telephoto Lens with Canon USA Warranty (CN55250IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Consistent Output, Rugged, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought this lens to add to the capabilities of my new T2i and the 18-55mm kit lens. It is the perfect addition. I am very happy with the flower close-ups, the background blurs beautifully at 250mm. I am also pleased with the bird photos I have taken so far, I am cropping them somewhat and they are turning out great. I am very pleased with this lens.
