Folks,

You all probably would have read about my new toy, after collecting my new lense, I brought home and tested it out indoors. Here are 2 test shot photos:

Photo Effect Mode: Off
Tv( Shutter Speed ): 1/60
Av( Aperture Value ): 4.0
Metering Mode: Evaluative
ISO Speed: 400

Focal Length: 55.0 mm
Image Size: 2336×3504
Image Quality: Fine
Flash: On
Flash Type: External E-TTL

Shooting Mode: Manual
Photo Effect Mode: Off
Tv( Shutter Speed ): 1/60
Av( Aperture Value ): 5.6
Metering Mode: Evaluative
ISO Speed: 400
Lens: 55.0 – 250.0 mm
Focal Length: 250.0 mm
Image Size: 2336×3504
Image Quality: Fine
Flash: On
Flash Type: External E-TTL

Based on my maiden experiences with the EFS 55-250mm, it was a really decent telephoto lense and a great value for money. In my opinion, the quality of the photos were good and the optics built inside the lense is more than worth the money paid for.

As for focusing, without the USM feature, comparing it to my powerful EF 70-200mm F4 L USM telephoto lense, I find it a bit slow though. Nevertheless, more test shots need to be done and I would look foward to test it out in the outdoors.

Keep you folks posted !!
