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

Canon's EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens is a compact and versatile telephoto zoom lens. It offers a 35mm equivalent focal range of 88-400mm. Its optical performance is bolstered by the incorporation of Optical Image Stabilization, which reduces the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 stops of shutter speed. This means that you can effectively shoot handheld in low-light situations where you could not before. The STM stepping motor achieves precise and virtually silent focus, making this a perfect choice for many video applications, as well as tracking moving subjects. Canon designed this lens with one Ultra Low Dispersion glass element in order to combat chromatic aberrations across the entire range. There are special lens coatings that help keep ghosting and flare to a minimum. This lens creates a 27 degree 50 feet - 6 degree 15 feet angle of view, 2.79-feet minimum focusing distance and accepts 58mm filters.

Optical Image Stabilizer (IS)

The 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.

Stepping Motor (STM)

The stepping motor (STM) pairs with the newly-designed focusing mechanism in order to fully handle the Canon EOS Movie Servo AF function. This function enables smooth and incredibly quiet continuous auto focusing capabilities while recording video or shooting still images.

Ultra Low Dispersion Glass (UD)

Canon's Low Dispersion technology is engineered to reduce chromatic aberrations, eliminates the tendency of light of different colors to focus to different points at the image plane. It ensures your images will come out crisp and clear, with less of a chance of diffracting light into an unwanted rainbow of colors. Take shots exactly like you want, without any flare-up or blurring.

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.

Manual Focus

The Canon lens features a specially designed ergonomic construction that is noticeable at first touch. The large rotation angle of this lens guarantees precise focusing. The mechanism moves super smoothly and without extra play, furthering the intuitive interaction along the focal plane.
