Comments about Canon 55-250mm f/4-5.6 EF S IS Telephoto Zoom Lens:
I bought this lens about 8 months ago. I was low on cash but wanted a lens with a focal length in the 100~300mm range. I opted for this one. I assumed that it would be an extension on my 18-55mm kit lens that came with my Rebel XSi. I have been sorely disappointed. The lens is able to zoom a great distance, but every picture comes out grainy. I have only been able to print a small number acceptable picture from the lens. The lens is adequate during bright light conditions, such as an afternoon baseball game or children at a park. I plan to sell this and upgrade to a lens with higher quality glass.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Semi-Professional
This is a great lens for most occasions. I did find that focusing with IS on was bit slow when shooting very fast action shots so I just turn it off for those shots.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first 55-250 lens and I'm amazed! I had to get used to actually using it but once I did, the pictures I got were amazingly beautiful. Thumbs up!

I wouldn't know what to do w/out this lens!!! It takes wonderful pictures at sporting events and gives a crisp picture!!
Excellent Lens for The Price
I bought this lens for my Canon EOS Xti and used it at a family wedding for the first time. I was impressed with it's ability to shoot distant photos in a fairly low light setting. Daytime action photos are fantastic but not as useful in lower light with any movement. Obviously this shouldn't be the lens of choice in those settings. But it far exceeded my expectations given the low price, the lens performed as well as any of the pro lenses I have used within the same catagory.

This lense attached to my Canon Rebel XSI is a great combination. The other day I shoot a few pictures of a herd of elk about a 1/2 mile away. Put the pictures on my computor and 20x them to count the tines on the big bulls with perfect clearity. Great lense, great camera....Thanks Canon
