    Can anyone tell me what they think of this lens? Circuit City by me is going out of business. It sells for $330 on Their website, but I think it was $200 in store. I don't remember. Is it worth getting? I know the f stop isn't AMAZING, but I can't afford $1000. What do y'all think?

    Thanks in advance!

    I like the lens, it's not the best out there, but for the money I like it. The focus ring is not crisp when shooting manual focus. Here is a shot with this lens at Bridavale falls in Yosemite.

    Here is a shot at the long end.

    It's one of Canon's newest lenses. I don't know of anyone who has actually used one.

    It's certainly not designed to be a 'pro' level lens...not with a price of $330...but it might be great for you.

    If you can get it for $200....I'd jump on that. Even if you don't like it, you could probably sell it for that much.

    I do not own this lens. But this lens rated pretty good in terms of image quality at this price range.

    EFs 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS is the best telezoom lens at its price point. A new one from authorized dealer is available at around $250/-. Here's a sample image I shot recently with this lens mounted on EOS 450D body:

    U need to get close and shoot in good light.
