EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM


My second lens was this telephoto lens. At this point, I’ve travelled to a few different countries, and I noticed that on occasion there were situations where a cathedral or a castle was just too far in the distance. It close enough to see but my standard lens couldn’t zoom in enough. At this point, I decided to add this lens to my arsenal of photography gear.
