55-250 or 70-300
Jan 25, 2013

Hi.

Which is better lens in terms of IQ: the 55-250? or the 70-300?

Both are f/4-5.6 and both have IS. Both are not as good as the L lens but their IQ's are decent. Price is different but that is not a consideration.

Of course the comparison is not apple-to-apple because the 55-250 has an advantage on the wide end at 55mm while the 70-300 has an advantage at the long end 300mm, 50mm more. Frankly, I don't care.

All I need to know is which one is better in terms of IQ.

Thanks for your inputs.
