Dustin has completed the Canon Rumors review for the very capable Canon EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS STM.
Sometimes budgets, needs, weight and the number of times you’re going to use a lens will have a bigger influence on buyers than just buying the best L lens possible at a certain focal length or range.
