Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM Lens

 

The Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM Lens is very light and compact, focuses fast, has a good focal length range and is inexpensive

Consumer review by:

Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM

 

I don't know why some reviewers here consider this lens as that bad. My copy is very sharp. I had the lens offered quite accidentally when I went to a small camera shop in Hanoi and after putting the lens on my camera and took a few testing shots I...

Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM review by DimLight

 

I used this lens for 8 months or so, before replacing it with a 70-300 f/3.5-5.6. It is a cheap lens, but I actually enjoyed it. Other reviews have already covered all technical aspects such as sharpness and IQ in general, so I will concentrate on my...

Cheap and ligthweight, not-so-bad image quality, good range, good bokeh

Cheaply built, slow and a bit soft. But hey, what can you expect

Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 USM II Autofocus Lens

 

I recently bought a Canon Rebel 350 8 mega pixel but it does not come with a lens so I have to search for one. I read reviews from other sites about this lens some positive from beginners and some not positive from hobbyist/professionals. Professional...

Simplicity, ease of use and price

Since I am novice, I don't noticed anything wrong with this lens

Consumer review by:

Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM review by GWM

 

Got this lens as part of a kit with the EOS-300D (Digital Rebel), and took it with me through Europe in 2004. New to this game and unaware of the lens's weaknesses, I took a number of shots fully open at 200 mm (300 mm equivalent). They turned out to...

Light, cheap, portable

Soft

Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II USM review by psulonen

 

I have to say my practical experience with this lens does not agree with the test results published here. I don't know whether this is because I have an exceptional copy, SLRGear tested a duff copy, or for some reason the test does not accurately...

Optically way better than it has any right to be at this price point

Well, it *is* a bargain telezoom, so what do you expect

Product Specifications

Super-compact and light, this lens is compatible with all EOS cameras and ideal for digital SLRs - when used on the EOS Digital Rebel, it's equivalent to an approx. 90-320mm lens. The 13-element design's new optical coatings are optimized for digital cameras. It focuses down to under 4 feet (1.2m), and its Micro USM-powered AF is faster than ever, due to new electronics within the lens.
