I just got the Canon 55-250mm IS no usm but it is better than expected. $300.00 ebay shipped from HK Here is my review. With sample shots.

I have just reciently purchased one just to test.
Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS

Most of the shots have the dog's nose as the focal point except for the 2 portrait shots where the focal point is the eye. You can see that some of the images are under exposed. That's because I did not want to do any post processing. Also the images are full size taken with a 40D As you can see the lens is capable of sharp images. The auto focus is not super fast but is on par with the Sigma 18-50mm ex dg. And the real suprise for me was it did not hunt in low light as much as I thought it would. And the IS is very effective as you can see from the hand heald shot at 250mm 1/15th of a second 4 stops !! (the second photo from the top).

All in all a fine lens for the price.
