Telephoto shooting is easy with the Canon EF-S 55-250mm lens. The 55-250mm lens is engineered with image stabilization technology. Photographers can take photographs in all types of lighting conditions and capture razor-sharp images, even if the hand moves a little while capturing a shot. The EF-S 55-250 mm Canon telephoto lens has built-in motion sensors inside the lens that stabilize the optical elements for much sharper pictures. With its stabilizer, this Canon telephoto lens captures all the details that are typically missed by the human eye. Its zoom lens both captures and delivers the details for an intimate photo with a blurry background and the action of fast-paced sports.

The Super Spectra coating absorbs light in the lens that is reflected by the internal elements and image sensor. The EF-S 55-250mm features a four-stop shutter speed that allows for holding a picture as slow as 1/15th of a second. This Canon lens also uses a UD-glass lens element to fix chromatic aberration.

Other accessories for this telephoto lens include hoods, caps and UV protection filters. UV protection filters are the ideal way to shield the lens from minor dings and haze.
