Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Zoom Lens Summary

With a full-frame equivalent focal range of approximately 88-336mm, the Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Zoom Lens gets you closer to the action, without needing to swap lenses. This compact and lightweight APS-C format telephoto zoom also includes optical image stabilisation and effective STM technology, which is found across the range of Canon mirrorless lenses.

Stabilisation is rated at 4.5-stops on cameras such as the EOS R50 and R10, which increases to 7-stops when combined with the powerful Canon EOS R7, which feature in-body stabilisation. This ensures you can handhold, yet still capture sharp images, even in low light environments while shooting without a tripod.

Thanks to the newer RF mount, the RF-S 55-210mm achieves high sharpness due to Canon’s advanced optical formula, which is common throughout all of their mirrorless lenses. When used in combination with effective Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, you can quickly and quietly track a host of distant subjects.

Key Canon RF-S 55-210mm Lens Features

  • Lightweight APS-C format short to super telephoto zoom lens
  • Cost-effective option for both stills and video
  • Smooth, fast and quiet STM stepping motor
  • 5-stop lens-based image stabilisation, rising to 7-stops with combined body IS
  • High quality results from an advanced optical design
  • Super compact 55mm front thread for adding filters

Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Zoom Lens in More Detail

Compact and lightweight design

The compact size and light weight of the RF-S 55-210mm lens makes this a great choice for bringing a portable zoom lens when travelling or hiking into nature. It’s so compact that you can screw-in affordable 55mm filters in order to control your shots with neutral density filters, polarisers and other useful lens filters, which are used for stills and movies.

Quick and quiet STM motor

The quiet STM (Stepping Motor) in the RF-S 55-210mm IS STM Lens focuses quickly when shooting photos, as well as being especially quiet for video recording. This ensures you can capture subjects with greater confidence and achieve more professional looking videos, even from greater distances.

Smooth results for stills and movies

With 4.5-stops of optical image stabilisation for handheld shooting, the Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Lens is a great choice for photographers and filmmakers. The Optical Image Stabiliser allows longer shutter speeds to be used with smoother handheld photography and videography, with even greater stabilisation available when mounted to a compatible EOS R series body with in-body stabilisation.

Excellent sharpness

The Canon RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Lens benefits from Canon’s latest optical design, which is found across many RF lenses. This combines special elements with lens coatings to deliver high quality images and video.

Our Verdict

Canon is busy adding new affordable RF-S lenses to join the growing number of photographers and hybrid creators adopting their superb mirrorless APS-C cameras. This RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM Lens offers the longest focal length, with an effective range of 88-336mm (full-frame equivalent), surpassing the existing RF-S 18-150mm F/3.5-6.3 IS STM Lens. This helps you capture more distant subjects, such as lifestyle, portraits, sports and action.

Despite arriving at such an attractive price point, the RF-S 55-210mm delivers great results, even while handholding, thanks to potent built-in optical image stabilisation. This provides 4.5-stops of lens-only stabilisation, which increases to an impressive 7-stops with cameras’s which include IBIS.

Focusing with the lens is swift and accurate, as well as being extremely quiet due to Canon’s STM technology, ensuring this super telephoto lens can be used with great results for both stills and video. With such a long focal length the RF-S 55-210mm f/5-7.1 IS STM is a strong second lens option for subjects such as portraits, wildlife and action, complementing a shorter focal length for more standard subjects.
