Canon EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS is cheap!

While at Trinoma in Quezon City, I looked for Infomax at the second floor to ask for the price of the new Canon EF-S 55-250 with Image stabilizer. I just confirmed it to cost only P11,600.00 (about$275), mall price but the unit was not yet available there and will have to wait next year when market price on Hidalgo St in Quiapo might even drop.

I only asked but I'm not gonna busy since I've already fixed my mind on buying at least the Nikon D80 with the 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 VR (vibration reduction) next year.

I already read canon ef-s 55-250 IS reviews on the Internet and it's always positive for the price. I'm not a Pro so i don't need those pricey lenses.


  1. Thanks for the info. I am planning to buy a new digicam for myself this Christmas (Canon of course). I am also not a pro, i just like to document my trips so no technical stuff for me. Have a nice day!!!

  2. For those interested, I recently emailed Canon, and they told me there are currently no plans to market this lens in the US.

  3. lawstude, better save up for photography is an expensive yet very fulfilling hobby

    barryindy, hmmm, i think i can shipone to the US if you like or use ebay :P

  4. Hmm. Nikon fan ka pala. I've decided to stop buying lenses. I'm satisfied with my 18-22, 24-105, 70-200 and 50mm. Just wanna simplify my hobby. Masyado nang OA kung bumili pa ako ng santambak na lenses. Di ko pa naman nama-master ang mga purchased lenses ko.

    So, when do we go out to shoot together? :)

  5. abaniko,i'm shifting to nikon kasi next year. You call your gear as a hobby?it's already fit for professionals. sige, shoot tayo pag meron na akonew toy.i only have a canon 300D with kitlens and 50mm
