Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6

canonCanon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens

This is a great lens! My favorite part is being able to take close up pictures from a distance. You don’t have to stand right in front of someone to take a picture.

The USA version including shipping! Amazon is also $255.00 shipping not included. Buy.com has it as a kit $279.95 shipping not included, but it does come with some accessories.

Here is the official product description:

Incorporating Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer technology, this Canon 55-250mm telephoto zoom lens captures long distance, low-light shots far better than many comparable lenses, helping you photograph the far-off action of athletes or zoom in for an intimate portrait with a blurred background. The 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). More significantly, the image stabilizer effect creates an equivalent shutter speed of roughly four stops faster than the same size lens without an image stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you can hold a 250mm lens steadily is normally 1/250th of a second, this Canon lens will let you hand-hold shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second. The lens also boasts a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration to create excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. Delivering an excellent performance at an affordable price for all photographers, the 55-250mm lens carries a one-year warranty.
