Recommend by Cheng KC about the lens and yes... really a nice lens and I happy because next I can shoot stage photographing session. It can zoom till 250mm which is really far... I did post the max zoom at below. One of the reason I buy this lens is because I plan to going Bon Odori Summer Nihon Cultural Festival 2009 on next week. It is a good event for me to test on my 55-250mm IS lens because most of the object are in far distance.
I did try this lens on prince and the quality just like potraits lens that I had, not bad ! You can visit Prince website for the photo that taken using this lens. I also use it to take some close up picture =)
I going to list out the accessories that I have now:-
- Canon 400D Body
- Canon 18-55mm kits lens (Going throw away soon)
- Canon 18-55mm IS lens
- Canon 50mm - 1.8 Potraits lens
- Canon 55-250mm IS lens
- Nissin - Speedlite Di622 External Flash
I think currently just enough for everything. No more modal to invest in this already~ Lets see the picture the 250mm lens can do.
