Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Sharp I've had this for a few months and am very happy with the quality and value. Fine pics for a price that doesn't break the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Canon Quality In A Lens. I purchased this lens approximately 18 months ago and I have been and still am very impressed with its performance, value and quality build. The auto-focus is typically Canon lightning fast and very accurate at all ranges. The Image Stabilization feature I believe is the best, bar none. The images are clear, sharp and the color rendition is better than I expected at this price point. Thanks for reading. Photonutjob. :))

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and quiet I bought this lens to supplement my 28-55mm lens on my Rebel T7i. I was amazed at how fast and quiet the focus is. I’m an amateur, so I may not have the closest eye, but the lens really works well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens Lightweight and pretty easy to use. simple to carry. Not one of those monster lens. The 55mm to 250mm is really nice. I do mainly landscape photos so it suits my needs as a one in all lens. AF works fine but may struggle, of course, if your shooting a thin bridge 7 miles away or thin tree branches. I don't have much to compare it with but I'm glad I got this instead of a bulky one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just love this lens! This is actually my "go to" lens unless I'm using my camera indoors. I can get fantastic close-ups, as you can see. I've been using it for almost four years now, and couldn't be happier!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mediocre Good zoom range, but had poor sharpness, especially at the long end. Could not get a sharp photo at 250mm, even with manual focus. Otherwise, autofocus is sufficiently quick. You do not get the immediate, anytime manual focus override like you do with STM or USM lenses. You'll need to disengage AF and go to full manual focus to do that. I'd suggest going with a better lens. Maybe I got a bit of a lemon, but I'd pass on this lens. If nothing else, at least get the STM version, if you want this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Versitility This lens captures sharp clear pic's, I shoot wild animals and this allows me to get close without disturbing them. It also is an excellent lens for Portraiture, I love it. I have the Canon Rebel SL1 with the EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Sharp See Photo Comparison Two Canon Lenses Photos Below are examples between Two Canon Lenses. Same Focal Length 70mm settings, Same ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/166 (70-300) left vs 1/128 (55-250) right. IS on both. Same Canon EOS 80D Body Taken within a minute apart. I love my Canon Products but this Lens does not work for me. The phots Below are reduced in image size the exact amount. Saved at the HIGHEST jpg Quality setting. This lens clearly has a problem.
