Pros: Price, weight and compactness, IS.

Cons: Contrast and sharpness at 250mm, manual focus ring impractical.

Opinion: Using this perspective with the 550D since its purchase to complete the kit lens 18-55 IS.rnRitengo has an excellent price / performance ratio. Is used at very competitive prices irrisori.rnL'AF is not fast especially in low light but gets the job done; surprising stabilizer is useful in photography freehand for video.rnConsigliabile who began photographing for his handling sporadically or those who need a telephoto. RNLA consider, however, that a more "honest" in the range 55-200 mm.rnDiaframmi Recommended: f / 8-f / 11.

Pros: Price, stabilizer, light and compact.

Cons: Hood uncomfortable, not USM.

Opinion: I have always had a great time there! I would say that at the beginning is a really good lens tele-have! Pleasantly surprised by the stabilization. Absolutely uncomfortable the hood! But essential in my opinion. Too bad it does not have the ultrasonic motor which makes it of little use in sports pictures .. But all in all I would say that it is really a very good optics!

Pros: price, stabilizer and lightness

Cons: building a little plasticky, low brightness to 250

Opinion: Given the money it offers is certainly an excellent lens for those who have a limited budget or has just entered the world of SLR ... I use it as fully in the 18-55 and I have always enjoyed the ... image stabilizer makes a great canvas for sporting events ... a little noisy and low brightness to 250 mm but most of the pros are advised against ...

Pros: Cost, size, weight, stabilizer, the overall quality of the images

Cons: Sharpness and contrast to 250mm

Opinion: Excellent value for money, has a good stabilizer and a focal length over 200mm long sfruttabile.rnPurtroppo loses much sharpness and contrast, the situation improves turning a couple of stops but already part of 5.6 so for sport is not exactly the best . rna part this is a good lens for that price, the quality from 55 to 150mm is more than enough and weight and compact dimensions make it an alternative higher quality than tuttofare.rnL lens' AF is mediocre, not very noisy but on average slower, obviously not USM so you can not expect troppo.rnLo stabilizer works very well: it is not invasive activation and does his duty even if it consumes a lot of batteria.rnIn general can be a good buy in kits or if you need a canvas to use once in a while, otherwise it has more sense to try a 70-200 or a fixed tele maybe in used (with costs at least tripled). rnVenduto for a tamron 70-300 VC, but it's another thing canon is egrav &and, defended well when compared to prezzo.rn

Pros: Compact, lightweight, stabilized, range of focal lengths, "macro"

Cons: Dark, blurry at 250, solidity (it's hard plastic!)

Opinion: I got with the camera and 18-55 and at the beginning I considered the perfect in terms of focal lengths. For a year and a half later it is still in my bag, and in relation to the price, I would consider the best telephoto on the market until the exit of the second version. The stabilization is his strong point, allowed me to use it in low light situations with excellent results. Another point in its favor is the range of focal lengths that the smaller size is played in a 88-400! Great if you want to run for city or country without the hassle of trasporatre kg of telephoto lenses! Another nice scopreta this telephoto is the ability to exploit it for images "macro" such as leaves, plants, flowers, fungi and animals onlookers with its ratio to 1:3 and a distance of more than 250 MAF @ 1 meter. Among the flaws is definitely the fact that it is a 2.8 then it expresses the best to f/5.6-f/8 with focal lengths of 55-150 and f / 8 to f / 9 rising above 150mm. Finally, a maximum draft of f / 8 is the minimum requirement in order to give the sensor an image that is quite defined. Overall it's a zoom that I suggest to anyone wishing to buy multi-purpose trails and a view whose priority is dictated by the size and weight, as well as from the portfolio.
