Zoom in on clarity

  • With a 55-250mm focal length you get in close to your subject while capturing the kind of detail the naked eye can't always see. Whether shooting sports and wildlife from a distance, this lens has the telephoto power to bring you closer to getting a photograph that stands above the rest.

Stable shooting environment

  • This lens is equipped with an optical image stabilization system, so your shots are clear and crisp with blur-free detail. A 7-blade circular aperture delivers beautiful, soft background broken effects.


  • A skilled photographer knows that optimal lighting conditions are vital to the quality of any photograph. This telephoto lens comes with a large f/4 to f/5.6 maximum aperture, which decreases the depth of field but allows in more light for shooting in low light conditions.

Compact design

  • The lens's compact design is thanks to a six-group zoom system that provides a maximum magnification of 0.29x at the telephoto end and a minimum focusing distance of 2.79 ft./0.85m throughout the zoom range.

Smooth operation

  • Shooting faraway images requires speed and precision focus. That's why this Canon lens features Canon's STM stepping motor, high-speed CPU, rear focus mechanism and improved AF algorithm offer fast performance.
