This compact, lightweight telephoto zoom lens is the ideal "second lens" in a complete EOS IX Lite photographic system. When used on the EOS IX Lite, the zoom range has the equivalent angle of view of about 69-250mm on a 35mm SLR camera. By carrying two lenses, the EF 22-55mm f/4-5.6 USM and the EF 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 USM, every photographic situation can be handled, from shooting wide-angle interiors at about 28mm to bringing distant subjects up close with the equivalent of a 250mm telephoto setting. The compact Micro USM (ultrasonic Motor) drive ensures high-speed autofocusing that is silent and precise. Zooming action is excellent, thanks to a new construction design and lubrication techniques, and image quality is outstanding.
