ephotozine reviewed the Canon EF-S 55-250mm 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II, an inexpensive (it’s usually less than $300), lightweight and popular zoom lens with a 4 stop image stabiliser. In the conclusion they write:
For a budget lens, this optic performs pretty well, striking a good balance between build, image quality and price. The light weight of the lens makes this lens no hassle to keep stowed in a camera bag for when it’s needed and the four stop image stabiliser will help users to make the most of the telephoto reach on offer. Although this is a basic lens, it will still win over many fans due to its ability to deliver sharp images.
The review comes with test charts and sample pictures.
