CANON EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS ?

Has anybody played with the new CANON EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS ?



How will this lens compare to the Sigma 70-300mm APO ?



I have the Sigma wondering if it worth losing the 50mm at the far end of the lens for Image Stab ?



What do think ?

Re: CANON EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS ?

I dont have one so this is opinion rather than any useful fact but as no-one else has chipped in I hope this might help a bit.

I was looking at the EF-S 55-250mm IS but I decided not to for the simple reason that it is a budget lens. Admittedly even Canon's budget lenses are pretty good, and for the money they are asking I doubt there will be too many complaints, but I think you would have to expect some limitations. Because I plan to try (at some point) and sell some of the images I take I decided to wait until I can afford at worst a mid-range lens and ideally an L-series.

If budget is more important to you than ultimate quality then I expect you would be very pleased with the lens. If you want high performance and quality images then I think you might risk being disappointed.

Again, this is just my opinion, but explains why I don't own one.

I've no idea how old this thread is so appologies if its really old and you've picked something else. Anyway I would suggest that you click on the link below and look at some (well quite a lot actually !) samples of pictures taken with this lens.
