Happy Mother's Day! If your household was anything like mine today, it involved a fair amount of parental photography; could the lens we review today have improved your shots? Today's lens, the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS.
Released in August 2007, the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS is the telephoto zoom cousin to the (2008) standard Canon kit lens, the 18-55m f/3.5-5.6 IS. With its EF-S specification, you won't need to worry about the lens vignetting on large- (1.3x) or full-frame sensors, as it designed specifically not to fit on the regular EF mount.
