What is the Canon 55-200mm lens used for?

Whether it’s capturing kids’ sporting events, portraits, birds and wildlife or any subject that is somewhat distant, a telephoto zoom lens can be very useful. The Canon EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens is Canon’s native telephoto zoom lens for the EOS M series of mirrorless cameras.

Can you use EF-M lenses on EF?

Is 55-250mm lens good for portraits?

As Andrew said, for portraits 55-250 works nicely in 55-100 range. Try taking a head & shoulders shot at 18, 35 and 55 settings, then at 70 and 100. Compare facial features, backgrounds and subject isolation between shots.

What is Canon EF-S 55-250mm used for?

The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens is an inexpensive, light, entry level telephoto zoom lens that has image stabilization, very good image quality for the price and a very useful focal length range that will nicely complement most general purpose zoom lenses.

Is EF or EF-S better?

Canon EF lenses are designed to work with full frame and APS-C DSLRs from Canon. Canon EF-S lenses have a smaller image circle that is only big enough to cover the smaller sensor found on Canon APS-C cameras. Because EF lenses have a larger image circle, they will cover full frame sensors and APS-C sensors.

What does EF M stand for?

electronic focus
Canon calls this the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS M. EF means “electronic focus,” meaning that there is an autofocus motor in the lens itself. All Canon lenses since 1987 have been EF. These are the lenses which attach to the front. EOS-M means that it adapts these lenses to an EOS-M camera attached to the back.

Are EF-M lenses any good?

The construction quality is very good, and the image quality is just extraordinary, even at full aperture (although the corners are a bit less good). You won’t really find an equivalent macro lens in terms of focal length for the Canon EF-M mount. Its price remains excellent for a lens of this quality.

Is the Canon M Series Dead?

Canon EOS M system not dead – but apparently it’s going in a “new direction” If there’s one camera mount that has had enough hype over the last year or so that they should be pumping out cameras weekly to take advantage of it, it’s Canon’s EOS M system. We’re keeping EOS M! We’re killing EOS M!

Are EF lenses good on mirrorless?

Yes, you can use Canon EF/EF-S lenses on mirrorless Canon cameras but you will need to use an adaptor.

Can I use EF lens on APS C?
