Canon’s New 55-250mm Lens Update Has an STM Motor


Behold! An update that was extremely expected by Canon: the 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS STM. This lens is a refresh to the company’s previous version of this product and includes an STM motor. In our meeting with Canon yesterday, the company also claimed that it is lighter in weight than its predecessor. The STM motor on this lens is being heavily pushed and marketed with the abilities of the new 70D.

As for the techie stuff: this lens has one new UD element, 7 aperture blades, and can focus as closely as 2.79 feet. It’ll be available in late September for $349.99.
