Canon has released a version of its EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 lens that uses its STM stepping motor. STM lenses are designed for movie recording, with the goal of providing smooth and silent focusing. Unlike its predecessor, the STM version of the 55-250 has internal focusing. You’ll be able to pick up the 55-250 STM lens in late September for $350. It’s also a safe bet that the 55-250 STM will come bundled with Canon DSLRs in the near future.

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Features and Specifications
Long-reaching zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 88-400mm, covering portrait-length to telephoto perspectives.
Optical image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 shutter speed steps to benefit shooting handheld in dim lighting and with greater zoom magnifications.
The STM stepping focus motor produces near-silent, smooth, and quick autofocus performance that is well-suited to video applications.
One ultra-low dispersion element helps to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion while also contributing to greater image sharpness, contrast, and clarity.
Enhanced lens coatings minimize flare and ghosting in order to produce true colors with maintained contrast.
A minimum focusing distance of 2.8′ throughout the zoom range and a maximum magnification of 0.29x at the telephoto end enables working with close-up subject matter.
A seven-blade circular aperture helps to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus quality to benefit selective focus and shallow depth of field imagery.
