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

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

 

Canon's EF 55-200mm digital SLR lens has an Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for fast and quiet autofocus and provides an imaging circle suitable for full frame and APS-C sensors.

Quiet, fast AF

No focus ring, chromatic aberration

Really a budget or starter lens, reasonably priced, but lacking the fast maximum aperture and expensive glass of more professional lenses.

the lens is not completely sharp for f/8 diaphragms, poor aperture, visible chromatic aberration at 55 and 200 mm focal length, for a USM motor-equipped lens, it missed too many times

The Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 USM II is typically sold as part of a two lenskits with entry level DSLRs. However, it is also available separatelyfor about 180 €/US$. It is a full format lens but, as usual, we´llhave a look how it performs on a 8mp...

The Canon EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 USM II is a lens with "potential". Unfortunately it is wasteddue to a very poor mechanical quality based on very cheap plastics.The lens has been simplified to a degree where even the focus ring has been abandoned....

Becoming a popular focal length range for purchase as a second lens on cropped sensors, starting at the points where most kit lenses finish. We take a look at how this offering from Canon performs.

Light weight and simple construction; Good control of aberrations and distortion

No lens hood supplied

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

 

Becoming a popular focal length range for purchase as a second lens on cropped sensors, starting at the points where most kit lenses finish. We take a look at how this offering from Canon performs.

Light weight and simple construction; Good control of aberrations and distortion

Poor build quality; No dedicated manual focus ring; Plastic construction throughout, including mount.; No lens hood supplied

Overall, for the price of the lens, it is an adequate performer although the over reliance on autofocus and the all-plastic construction do raise a few concerns. At the short end, and focussed on infinity, there is virtually nowhere to grip the...

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...

no manual focus ring, plastic build, looks very cheap

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

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.
