if translate to 529$ , EF-S or Tamron VC would be a better choise... given you can use it on normal DSLR..

bulk - if you have no other EF lenses you want to use - the EF-S and especially the tammy would be huge in a kit compared to this.

To be clear, the EF-S 55-250 is just 1" longer than the EF-M 55-200. I don't define that as 'huge'.

You are forgetting the size of the adapter there. So make that more than 2 inches.

here's how it looks:

the zuko 14-150mm is nearly the exact same size as the 55-200mm M. (2.5 x 3.3")

and yes, that was a damned hard thing to find .. a lens with the same dimensions.

another comparison with the sony:

If I'm going to use the 55-250 STM then personally... I'd rather just do this...

Same depth front to back but MUCH better controls, faster phase detection AF through the viewfinder and better AF performance in liveview.

Then again, I don't have the 55-250 STM, nor the M (anymore)

But, as a consumer, and one who would buy the M to significantly downsize, I wouldn't use the 55-250 over the 55-200 because it's a substantial increase in weight and size.
