Re: OK - a follow-up question...

I bought the 18-250 after a summer of changing between the 18-55 and 50-200.

Its now my official holiday lens. Its a good all rounder although lens creep is the one thing that can annoy, you really do have to use the lens lock to stop the thing from self extending (I've been through the elastic band over the lens barrel phase, but you learn to live with it ). Oh and no "Quick focus" is offered which again is something you learn to live with.The Upside is focusing down to half a meter throughout the zoom range, something niether the 50-200 or 55-300 can manage.

A truely versitile lens, basically converts your SLR into a heavy megazoom point and shoot!
