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.

I bought this lens to compliment my 18-55mm kit lens. This lens looks and feels the same as that lens as it is part of the same EF-S range. However the focus ring is much smoother than the kit lens, and the lens feels a lot more premium. It's fairly heavy, but that's expected from a lens of this nature.
The in-built stabiliser is a very welcome addition, especially if you shoot video like me. It works wonderfully well and allows you to shoot ample, smooth video even when zoomed right in at 250mm. I'm not going to comment much on the autofocus because I believe that's down to the camera, but with my 700D, the AF works great in the viewfinder mode. But when shooting video the lens can hunt, but if you had a camera like the 80D, you would achieve quicker AF thanks to the dual pixel AF system.
All in all, this lens is a must have, and is perfect for sport, wildlife and most other types of photography/video.
I have since had a reply from Canon and they have said that this seller is not eligible for the £25 summer cash back offer so the offer on amazon was misleading although it was advertised as eligible when I ordered this product. This is truly mis selling and I am trying to find a way to contact Amazon to make my point but it seems impossible to find a way to contact them directly to discuss this mis selling. the product is as I said extremely good but I only bought from this seller as it was at the time the best deal and intimated that it was possible to obtain the £25 cashback deal from Canon which it is clearly not!! I have had no problem getting cash back through Jessops earlier in the year for another lens I purchased through them, I wish I had bought through them this time. I would like amazon to contact me to explain why they advertise these deals when they are untrue. I believe there is a seller at the moment selling the same lens but I am sure it will also fail to get cash back as they are outside the EU.
Update following contact from Amazon representative. This has been resolved to my complete satisfaction and re-established my faith in amazon customer service, thankyou.
I bought this lens after reading reviews on how good it is even though I've already got lenses covering this focal range & at £136.00 New I had to try it!
I've had the 1st version of this lens when it came out & though at the time it was acceptable but not brilliant, so went & got a canon 70-300 is then a tamron SP 70-300 VC & I'm convinced the 55-250 STM is sharper, the reason being because you can hand held it better because it's not a heavy lens.
I just hope canon bring the next version out with better build quality & full time manual focus over ride, price between this lens & the 70-200 f4 is L,
Canon would be on to a winner.
My initial intention was to get a second-hand 70-200 is L
But I'm so pleased with this lens & the better range it offers, I think I'll stick with this as the image quality is compatible with my 24-105 L lens & it doesn't take up much room in your camera bag 😉
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.
