The 70-300 IS USM, if I've got the right model, is three times the price of the 55-250.

u$s 200 more (amazon)

The 55-250 takes the same 58mm filters as 18-55. The 70-300mmtakes 787mm filters and is also twice the weight.

Ohh, good to know that...

Having studied what was available and being on a budget, it was a no-brainer for me to get the 55-250mm (£150 in the UK) and I'm very happy with it. See my Florida images for dragon fly shots with the 55-250mm.

Great dragon fly pictures. I look into taking those kind of pics. Lots of kinds of dragon flies!

Good Luck


Thanks Stuart
