EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
From the manufacturer
Sometimes you just need to get closer – but you can’t. Such as when a subject is likely to be scared off by your presence or when you just want to be discreet while capturing a special moment. This is when a telephoto zoom lens, like the EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS STM, comes into its own.
Go Everywhere with Extra Reach
The extra reach of the EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS STM perfectly compliments a standard zoom like the EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM. Together these portable, lightweight lenses offer a versatile zoom range to cover a range of subjects.
Smooth, Quiet STM Focusing When Shooting Movies
STM technology provides quiet continuous focusing when capturing video with your EOS and fast, accurate AF when shooting photos. STM focusing is so quiet that it’s not picked up by the camera’s microphone, leaving your video soundtracks free of unwanted distractions.
