This deal has expired! This deal has expired!

Camera lenses aren't cheap, especially north of the border, but there's a good deal on a Canon telephoto if you're interested in some new glass. While quantities last, you can pick up the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens on sale for $199.99 with free shipping. Though the item is being sold by Canadian Expo, it is still being fulfilled by Amazon which means the free shipping over $25 should apply.

Often called the nifty 250mm, this is a good beginner telephoto for those of you that like to take sports shots outdoors -- where it's most effective. Indoors and in low light conditions, this lens doesn't perform well but outdoors in good light will net you some good shots -- especially with the built-in Image Stabilization. Average price is still around $300, so you'll want to pick it up now if you're interested.

Free shipping is available as the order is being fulfilled by Amazon. Quantities are limited, though, so you'll want to act fast if you hope to score this telephoto.

Thanks to forum member Nanodollars for sharing this one with us!

    • Good lens. Had one of these, bought for $250 back in like 2009. Served me well until I upgraded to a 70-200L a month ago.

    • Have to say Memory Express is getting pretty bad with their price beat policy;

      Hello,

      I’m sending this to confirm that we did receive your online order number 2350xx for the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens and the price beat with Amazon.ca
      However, unfortunately we cannot honor the price beat since it would put the product severely below our purchasing cost. Because of that, we cannot approve the price beat.
      If you still wish to go ahead with the purchase or if you might have an alternative Canadian retailer, we would be more than happy to assist you.

      Unfortunately at this price point, we are simply unable to.

      Regards,

      Sales Representative ME Calgary NE

    • Excellent lens for the price. I still using mine.
      70-200 is too exp...and too pricy if you go 2.8 IS 70-200

    • You can probably PM at FutureShop which would bring it down to 287 + tax. (329 reg)

    • This lens has been posted here several times from Amazon.ca but with a lower price and with taxes included. $200 plus tax is not a hot deal.

      I'm sorry the $200 does not include a time machine. Seriously, I did a quick search and did not find anything. THen again, if you need a telephoto today, show me a better deal, I need to buy one for an upcoming event.

    • whenever I see these cheap lens deals, I want to get rid of the m4/3, to pricy for a good m4/3 lens, except the sigma twins

      is there a adapter to connect this to m4/3 camera?

    • had this lens a few months now, and although i haven't had a chance to use the telephoto in many situations, the image sharpness from this lens was kind of surprising. Throw an extension tube in it and it makes for a decent macro.

      ME has refused this PM many times in previous threads, mostly because the seller is not Amazon directly but because it's an Amazon storefront - ie, not authorized dealer. I tried it instore and the fellow there actually found a dealer that he would uber-match against that would have brought the price to around $235 I think.
      Many people have had good luck with FS & BB. I got mine for about $185+tax @ FS.

    • Future shop will pm this lens no problem. It will be $15 more than amazon but it is worth it imo if one wants the lens right away and amazon shipping can be tedious.

      Great lense.

      Can anyone recommend a decent compact case for my 60D+250mm lens?

    • This is a great lens for the money. I use it all the time, even indoors - with a good flash this will take some stunning shots. At 55 mm it is F/4.0 and decently sharp and the IS is necessary for indoor shooting.

    • I'm surprised the photography snobs haven't come in to bash this lens (for not being "L glass") yet. lol

      Can anyone recommend a decent compact case for my 60D+250mm lens?
      If you have a costco membership, there was a $30 national geography sling bag. Not sure if its still there though.
