Canon's EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens is a powerful telephoto zoom lens uniquely designed to retain a lightweight and compact form. It EOS DSLR cameras that use the EF-S lens mount with APS-C sized sensor and offers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 88-400mm. Supporting the optical performance of this lens is the incorporation of Canon's 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This facilitates the use of shutter speeds up to four times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur, meaning you can shoot in less light. A panning detection feature automatically turns off the Image Stabilizer in either the horizontal or vertical direction when following moving subjects. There is even an Ultra Low Dispersion glass element in order to help combat the effects of chromatic aberration across the entire range. This lens creates a 27° 50' - 6° 15' angle of view, a 3.61' minimum focusing distance and accepts 58mm filters.
Ultra Low Dispersion Glass (UD)
Canon's Low Dispersion technology is engineered to reduce chromatic aberrations, eliminating the tendency of light of different colors to focus to different points at the image plane. This means your images will come out crisp and clear, with less of a chance of defracting light into an unwanted rainbow of colors. Take shots exactly like you want, without any flare-up or blurring.
Optical Image Stabilizer (IS)
Lens features Optical Image Stabilization technology, a feature that employs an innate, built-in mechanism in order to compensate for camera shake. By eliminating natural shakes and sways with camera movement your images will come out crisp and clean every time.
Advanced Aperture Design
The circular aperture produces a natural background blur. With Canon lenses you can create stunning Bokeh effects, thanks to the finely tuned features and advanced optical design. By keeping the background intentionally blurred, additional focus is created on the subject of an image. The uniquely engineered diaphragm blades of this lens, along with the virtually circular aperture, deliver stunning renditions of highlights the back and foreground.
