EF-S means a lens in the Canon EOS system that will only work on cameras with APS-C or smaller sensors (if any smaller than APS-C EOS sensors are ever created). They can not be used on cameras with larger 35mm film sized “full frame” sensors. 55-250mm is the focal length of the lens.
Which is better canon 18-55 or canon 55-250?
If they are both STM, then you need to decide what you need more: the convenience of having one decent ranged lens that you don’t need to swap (18-135), or the extra range you get from the 18-55 and 55-250 combo. I have the 18-135 STM and it gets the job done. Not too heavy and great range. Perfect walk around lens.
Which is better 18-135mm or 55-250mm?
18-135mm IS STM + 35mm or 50mm primes for street, lowlight and travel photography 18-55mm IS STM + 55-250mm IS for general zoom and telephoto zoom photography As per previous posts, would recommend STM versions for either 18-55 or 18-135 if you can get it.
