Pros: buona lente per il costo e per la qualità del sistema autofocus STM studiato per essere usato in modo specifico con la nuova canon 70 D con la quale si ottiene un abbinamento eccezionale grazie al nuovo sistema rivoluzionario Af Dual Pixel CMOS AF .

Cons: all'apparenza sembrerebbe plasticoso , in confronto alla serie L professionale tropicalizzata , ma che ha un'altra funzionalità

Opinion: in risposta all'amico Carletto66 , dico di provare questo obbiettivo con la Canon 70 D e rimarrà entusiasta, per un autofocus mai visto prima su nessuna macchina canon ed io posseggo la 1DS mark III e la 1D mark iv.......l'autofocus dell'accoppiata 70d + 55-250 stm è 4 volte piu' veloce di qualsiasi obbiettivo L montato sulle mie macchine professionali. inoltre caro amico riguardo al sito che tu citi sulsito www.the-digital-picture.com/Lens c'e un piccolo trucco .....il sito dove si paragona il 55-250 stm è settato a f 5.6 con una canon 60D mentre il paragone fotografico con il canon 70-200 L IS USM è settato con la 1DS markIII a f/4........è certo che così si vedono delle differenze. prova a modificare i parametri mettendo su entrambi gli obbiettivi la 60D, 200mm e f /5.6 per entrambi......e noterai subito che le differenze sono del tutto minime. ciononostante stiamo parlando di un obbiettivo dal costo di 1/3 dell'altro.

Pros: Lightweight, silent AF, stabilization, versatile

Cons: economic construction, loss of quality (especially sharpness) over 200mm

Opinion: Taken as the first "super-zoom" for Canon APS-C, coupled with the classic 18-55 kit allows you to cover 90% of situations without spending a capital; suitable for those who do not have too many pretensions, this lens guarantees more than discreet performance in conditions of good brightness and with subjects not too far away. The sharpness is discreet, not exciting, even at TA, while there is always a bit of vignetting, instead the chromatic aberrations remain contained; performance drops above 200mm. Very good stabilization, af quite fast and accurate, average reliability. The construction entirely in plastic is not its strong point, on the other hand, thanks to the low weight, the 55-250 is excellent to take on the road and suffers very little from drift phenomena; good the two rings, "light" but not too much. Obviously it is not a bright lens, but on the economic range of Canon it is not better, if not pointing to the new and more expensive 70-300. Advised

Pros: Lightness, sharpness, stabilization

Cons: A bit plastic and nothing else for the price

Opinion: It seems to me a good lens that I used of "forklift" with my second Canon M5 aps-c camera. A combination entrusted to my son that has proven effective even in shed shots (the lens is a 400mm equivalent on aps-c). He asked me to replace it with the more effective EF 70-300 is USM II with Nano USM technology thus reaching 480mm equivalent. The 55-250 is undoubtedly a small gem quite sharp, not very fast, but certainly suitable for photography of fairly static subjects and for a multipurpose use on light and transportable solutions. Highly recommended!

Pros: Price, lightness, focal length range, portability, stabilized, good AF in many situations, quite sharp

Cons: "Plastic" construction quality, hood not included, brightness, not very sharp over 200mm, vignette at maximum focal lengths, color rendering.

Opinion: Excellent purchase as medium-tele to start, also considering the quality / price ratio. I have been using it for two years now and I must say that in "easy" situations it copes quite well (obviously for its price range). I was not thrilled by the "off" colors that it makes to all focal lengths, and the vignetting is very present, although obviously correctable in PP. Comfortable to take with you on excursions as a handyman, easy to use thanks to the generally effective AF. In conclusion, I recommend this lens to those who want to start by spending little, then moving on in the future to better alternatives such as sigma / Tamron / Canon L. Rating:7,5/10

Pros: lightweight, economical, robust, af very fast and precise, sharp already at full aperture, excellent stabilizer, excellent colors and blurred

Cons: nobody

Opinion: one of the best optics I've tried and at a really good price. I believe that at that price there is nothing better. and probably not even at twice the price you will not find anything like it significantly better. a few years ago you bought new for less than 200 euros. if you consider switching to the ff in the future then consider the new 70-300is but it costs much more.
