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: Lens quality, fast and quiet stabilizer, lightning AF, unbeatable price, ring smoothness, MAF distance.

Cons: Slight loss of quality towards 250mm.

Opinion: This EF-S 55-250 STM is a fully successful goal. It must not have been easy for Canon to bring together all the qualities that the amateur photographer desires from a lens, namely compactness, lightness, speed and silence of focus (really remarkable), effective stabilizer, definition and precision optics at a very low price. Sure, zooming out, the plastic (of excellent quality, though) is the master, but nothing affects the quality of the shot and the ease of keeping the subject hooked. So-called defects, such as non-exceptional brightness or lack of lampshade are only apparent limitations, since at the time of purchase they are already known and I think it is impossible to do better in this category. If you don't use your APS-C for work and don't want to invest big numbers in more professional lenses, with internal zoom and less "plastic" appearance (but not necessarily more robust), this EF-S 55-250 STM is your telephoto lens. Vote 9.

Pros: Optical Quality - Price Quality Ratio - Acceptable Brightness

Cons: Really nothing related to the price

Opinion: All in all interesting, a third of a stop brighter than the Sony counterpart. Really absurd price, unthinkable not to buy it. The focal excursion is absurd, you get to 400mm equiv. with not even 150 euros. Too bad the lampshade is not included. Optically it is remarkable and NOT VA CONCENT, with the previous version NOT STM, here we are on another level. (Good quality at TA, excellent closing a stop, a slight drop only to 250). Noteworthy is the really impressive stabilization. Featherweight. Irrelevant the plastic bayonet, never broken one in 15 years of photography.

Pros: Price, lightness, portability, good excursion.

Cons: It is particularly noticeable the plasticity of the materials, the brightness is not the strong.

Opinion: Bought at the last second for a mountain holiday, my kit was lacking in a tele lens and this was a great purchase to cover long focal lengths. It loses a lot of brightness if we do not have sunny days, but given its price (just over €150 on eglobal) I would say that we can not expect that much. All in all quality/price I am very satisfied and I recommend this lens on APS-C entry level as my 600d, instead I recommend the Canon 18-200mm on APS-C like my 80d.

Pros: Sharpness, autofocus, robustness, focus and zoom bezel, stabilizer, silent

Cons: Little Bright

Opinion: I try this lens on a Canon 600d. For the current price, excellent lens! Maybe at 250mm is not the maximum sharpness, but up to 200mm is fantastic! Then on APS-C is an 88-400mm! Perfect for sports photos, portraits and photos at long distance subjects. Only flaw is the diaphragm, very closed F4 to 55mm to end at F 5.6 to 250mm
