SINGAPORE - Canon today revealed the new EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II telephoto lens, with an extensive zoom range that allows photographers to get intimately close to the action from a safe distance. Nature, wildlife and sports photo enthusiasts will enjoy the benefit of the crop factor to get maximum detail at long distances.
The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens allows users to take picturesque long-range photographs. Photographers can expect sharper shots with the inclusion of an Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) lens element, which allows the user to maintain high image quality across the entire zoom range.
In addition, Canon’s four-stop Image Stabilization technology lets photographers take pictures in low light settings with ease, and with automatic panning detection, users need not miss high speed shots anymore.
Portrait-oriented photographers can look forward to creating unique images with the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II’s new 7-bladed circular aperture capability that creates a smooth out-of-focus effect for pleasing and professional-looking pictures.
With a long zoom range yet weighing in at only 390g, the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II is ideal lens for photographers seeking an affordable and versatile lens for general-purpose telephoto photography.
Environmentally conscious users will also be pleased to know that all of the glass elements used in the lens’ optics are completely lead-free.
The EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II will be available from early October at authorized Canon dealers at the recommended retail price of S$499.
