Thoughts: Canon 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS

When choosing my first long Canon lens, I could not decide between the 70-300 IS and the 55-250 IS. The 70-300 was a bit bigger profile than I wanted, but I kept hearing that the 55-250 was a cheaply made lens. I do a lot of city photography, and I did not want a lens that stood out so I eventually went with the 55-250 because of its small size (I bought from reputable place in case I needed to return). I am so happy I made the decision. It is so much sharper than I could have imagined for a sub-$250.00 lens. I find I use the 55-250 more than my Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, which I thought would be my everyday lens. Typically when I go out shooting, I walk around shooting with the 17-50, and then on the way back I switch to the 55-250 for new perspective on the area. I cannot recommend this lens enough.
