[Amazon.ca] Amazon.ca - Canon EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS STM Lens - $237.97

When browsing Amazon.ca found the above deal. Seems like a really good deal for the telephoto lens, usually goes 350 plus. Shipped and sold from amazon.ca so should be reliable and the warranty should apply.

Thanks!

I picked up this lens back in february from amazon for ~$250 with no tax (weirdly)... Canadian retailer and everything...

Anyways, Had a chance to play with it over the months. pretty good IS. Using it with a T4i. focus is fast, no zoom creep, overall, pretty happy with it. It does suck that it's only an EF-S lens though...

PM at BB which has it for $399.99.

Bought this lens last summer for $237.50 after PMing with Dell. Great lens for the price.

If you know a thing or two about DSLR you'd know this is really not that fancy or heavy...

Even if it ships to Canada for free it's not a hot deal.

OP is about a newer gen mid-long range zoom lens, this is about a camera, if you look for a lens by coming in here, you probably don't need this lowest entry gen DSLR

Those two lenses bundled are typical last gen kit lenses that can be found mintly used everywhere for really cheap

Two SD cards with no speed ratings? I assume it's one of the slower models, pass

Always take less care about those "extra" bundled stuff, especially when they pretty much listed everything that should be in a new DSLR box anyway...

Thanks must be given to OP. I just PMed this at BB for a grand total of $250 and change. now just to find someone to buy my old 75-300mm III lens :(

Also for my 2 cents, those Groupon deals are no good....i agree with many of the reason stated above.

Don't get me wrong, I love using my smartphone to capture quick throwaway candids for instant sharing but there is no cell that shoots anywhere near the IQ of 250mm focal on a DSLR/mirrorless.

If portability is a desired factor while maintaining DSLR IQ, P&S's like the Sony RX100 greatly surpass phones too, albeit up to 70mm.

That said, some people are more than happy with cell image quality so it boils down to preference.

These same people would probably not have purchased such fancy but heavy toys before, so why would you expect them to change? This lens is a tool, not a toy.
