Billed as the "perfect companion" to the Canon 70D, SL1 and T5i, Canon has announced a new long-zoom telephoto lens, the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. This lens is the successor to the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens, which featured Canon's gear-driven DC motor focusing system. This new model marks the sixth lens to utilize Canon's Stepping Motor (STM) focusing system, which as we've seen on other lenses, provides fast yet extremely quiet autofocus.
