The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens is a compact and lightweight telephoto zoom lens that is specifically designed for the range of EOS digital SLR cameras that use the smaller EF-S lens mount. Combining powerful performance with high image quality, this lens offers the equivalent of 88-400mm in 35mm format, and is ideal for photographers seeking an affordable, versatile lens for general-purpose telephoto photography.
The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens incorporates Canon's 4-stop compensation Image Stabilizer technology. This allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. Automatic panning detection automatically turns off the Image Stabilizer in either the horizontal or vertical direction when following moving subjects.

Bought the Canon 55-250. Result? Better pictures, more detail, faster autofocus, more stable focus with far less hunting for a focal point, brighter pics and a better zoom. (cheaper than the Tamron as well) Also after swapping over and testing both side by side, the Tamron has decided it is no longer sick with communication issues.
My conclusion at the moment and aside from reliability (far too early to comment). This is a very good budget zoom lens. Which is giving me the results I expected from a DSLR. Very pleased. I have included 3 test pics. Not extensive in any way. Same 100D camera used the same fixed tripod, distance and lighting for both lenses. Photo 1 is the canon lens photo 2 the Tamron
So I ordered this bad and after it arrived I had several chances to put it to great use and the results have been fantastic! I now have several moments with my furry friends captured perfectly because of this lens. I'll add a couple of photo's so you can see for yourself how great this lens truly is
The focus and zoom rings feel very smooth yet not loose. They also have a comfortable amount of resistance.
Lightweight; doesn't feel cumbersome without a tripod.
Sadly, no full-time manual focus override at this price point but it doesn't matter to me.
Image stabilisation is a bonus, works beautifully. Sure, this isn't equal to the Canon EF L lenses (I've tried those for comparison), but at £136, the price is much more manageable and the physical proportions much less intrusive for those of us not shooting pro shots at Wimbledon, and the quality for most will exceed expectations.
Would recommend to anyone.
