No. The Olympus 40-150 is sharper, I would even say a lot sharper, than the EF-S 55-250. I had that lens once but I sold it. It's well regarded but I was disappointed. The 40-150 is astonishingly good, and if you think of the price for it it's almost unbelievable.

In all respects  that GB listed the 40-150 is equivalent to a FF 80-300/8-11,2, but when I take a picture with it I regard it as a 40-150/4-5,6, which it is, and it gives me the same FOV and same exposure. But deeper DOF and a little more noise, theoretically at least.
