Featuring Canon’s STM stepping motor and a high-speed CPU the rear focus mechanism supports Canon’s Movie Servo AF for smooth, quiet and continuous focus adjustments. The Canon 55-250mm Telephoto zoom lens features one UD lens element that reduces chromatic aberration helping you achieve excellent image quality with high resolution and contrast.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Prime Lens

canon 50mm f1.4 , canon camera lenses

The 50mm f/1.4 Prime is one of Canon’s best lenses for everyday photography. Capture excellent photos in low light situations with awesome bokeh.  The only reason it’s not the #1 50mm lens (see #1 on our list) is the price. It’s about $200 more than the 50mm f1.8 lens in the #1 position. For the price you get better opportunities in low light situations, and you get a more solid lens overall. You won’t be disappointed at the versatility you can achieve with this lens.  It’s light weight yet durable – a must have lens.

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II Telephoto Zoom Lens

Canon EF-S 55-250mm

The Canon 55-250mm Image Stabilized Telephoto Zoom lens lets you easily capture the far-off action of athletes or zoom in for a portrait of your child performing on stage. There will be some noise when focusing because it’s not totally quiet. The high-zoom-ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses).  If you need to catch a shot quickly, you may want to use the manual focus because the auto focus is a little slow. This is a winner of a lens. Now discontinued by Canon it is available for about half the price as when it was first introduced.
