^^^^Nice shot. The detail this lens renders is impressive. I had the 55-250mm II lens and this STM version blows it away. Definitely a sleeper bargain lens. Combined with the SL1 body, it makes a very capable lightweight walkaround.

Or a great back packing telephoto to go along with the 10-18 STM and maybe a pancake STM too...

A nice lightweight kit that covers a lot of focal range.

Lens needs more love, good grief.

Ripping good shots there^^^^^ Is that with bare lens, or extension tubes or Raynox filter?

Some recent shots with this lens. I am taking it for my bike rides with my 100D because it's a relatively light package.

I gave my IS version to my grand-daughter last Christmas, and told myself I'd get the STM. And I guess I've been just laying around.... this thread has gotten me off my duff - I'm getting it for my birthday this month.

I've had this lens for a little while now and it is hardly ever off my camera. I had before considered getting the 70-200 f4 IS, and I wonder how much I'd really be gaining with all the extra cash it would require. Sure it's much better built, but I could buy 4 of these for that price.

OK! Got it from a local store (decided to do that simply to help local supply to stay -too many stores have evaporated).

The only one they had left was in their showcase - I had taken my camera along to test it, so I wasn't uncomfortable with not getting an "in-the-box" lens... they did have all the proper box/paper.

I tested minimum, middle, and far distance auto-focus, zooming in and out min and max. Everything worked nicely !! This STM seems lighter than the older model I had... I checked when I got back home, and sure enough, it's 0.13 oz lighter.

And (s i l e n t) auto-focus - - couldn't hear a thing - not a whisper, not a hiss.

I'm glad to have this back - Happy Birthday to me !
