    Lens focus is fast and sharp. The IS helps for those long zooms without a tri-pod. Lens is light and compact and wasn't much bigger than the standard lens the camera came with. All in all it's an amazing lens for the price, but I would like to have better speed for those low light shots. Unfortunately the faster lens are a LOT more so I can do without the speed if I can save more than half the cost as a beginner who just upgraded from a Point and shot.

    I have used this lens for distant (tens of kilometers) mountain shots, as well as to get closer to wildlife that is relatively nearby (50 meters, or so). The quality of the build of the lens is good, and I have been satisfied with the autofocus and IS. However, I have been unhappy with the crispness of the focus of this lens - particularly for distant shots. For closer scenes, the focus is better, but still cannot be described as "crisp". I will "get by" with this lens until I can afford a better one.

        I own this lens and use with T2i , i do mostly out door nature pix and find this lens light weight and good for close ups and short distances, i am not a professional so i dont know all the correct terms but the pictures are sharp and color is good,also the lens covers a lot of ranges so i leave it on my camera most of the time..so this is a good overall lens for everyday use ,

          Comments about Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS:

          If you own a crop-sensor camera like any of the Digital Rebels or the Canon 50D/60D/70D or even the 7D then this is THE value telephoto zoom lens to get. Beside its intended use, Its ideal for travel due to its low weight, good zoom range, and low cost - even if you damaged/lost it, it won't be a big setback. Unless you're a professional, this lens is all you need. One of the best value lenses from Canon.
