Re: Best telephoto lens within the $650 range?

In that price range probably the 75-300 IS would be your best bet for new...otherwise you are looking at the superzoom category of 18-2x0 from the various manufacturers (Canon, Sigma, Tamron). Also without IS you can get the 70-200 F4, or a used 70-200 f4 IS. In EF-S you can also get the 55-250 from Canon.

Used you can find Sigma 70-200 (lots of people with issues on the various models), Canon 70-300 DO IS, Sigma 100-300 f4, Canon 300 f4, Sigma 50-500 (Bigma non OS), Sigma 150-500 OS.
