Manufacturer's Description

Affordable, powerful telephoto zoom

The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II is a telephoto zoom lens combining powerful performance with high image quality. With a focal length equivalent of 88-400mm in 35mm format, it is ideal for photographers seeking an affordable, versatile lens for general-purpose telephoto photography.
Image Stabilizer with automatic panning detection

To combat the effects of camera shake, the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II incorporates Canon’s 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. Automatic panning detection automatically turns off the Image Stabilizer in either the horizontal or vertical direction when following moving subjects.
UD lens element

The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II employs a Canon UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) lens element to suppress the effects of secondary chromatic aberrations – for crisp, sharp, high-contrast images without fringing throughout the zoom range.
Super Spectra Coatings

Canon’s Super Spectra coatings combat ghosting and flare by absorbing light that may be reflected off digital camera sensors or internal lens elements. Super Spectra coatings also help ensure accurate colour balance and sharp, high-contrast results.
Circular aperture diaphragm

For shots taken at large apertures, a circular aperture diaphragm creates smooth, even blur – ideal for emphasising subjects shot against distracting backgrounds.
Lead-free glass
