And the punchline? I ordered a EF-S 55-250 STM just last night.
Oh well.

From the spec's provided it looks like the 55-250 will remain a better lens for everything except size.

yes. but .. it's size is pretty incredible.

comparison of the short registration distance APS-C kit zooms

Fuji 2.95 x 4.65" 20.46 oz f/3.5-4.8
Sony 2.5 x 4.25 12.1 oz f/4.5-6.3
Canon M 2.4" x 3.38 9.17 oz f/4.5-6.3

canon's quietly created the lightest (and smallest) ASP-C kit out there ranging from 11mm to 200mm

an interesting graphic from canon japan.

Yes, the size is pretty incredible and barring any IQ problems I will be purchasing this lens. But if I had the 55-250 already I wouldn't feel I was missing out.
