I actually was looking at both camera packages for the first to pop up. I am now looking for a deal for the 55-250mm lens. I understood that the one I got was low quality, so I didn't have high expectations. For the price, can't expect a professional lens!

But you can buy the 55-250 IS for just $220 now at B&H.

While the 75-300 III is $155. The $65 price difference is so little yet the 55-250 IS is so much better a lens. It is essentially an updated version of the 75-300 yet with IS. It would be a no brainer to chose it over the old 75-300. 6 years ago when I bought the 75-300 is cost $190. Enough said.
