Also one other question the 70-300 doesn't focus to infinity so can you take an in focus pic of the moon with it?

The 70-300 certainly does focus to infinty, not quite sure where you found that information but is wrong.

I haven't got a 70-300 so I can't do a direct comparison but I do have the 55-250 stm and have found it to be quite an amazing lens and very sharp throughout the range even at full aperture. All reports I have read state that is sharper than the 70-300, this sems to show in this comparison:

Wow thank you. Thats exactly what I was looking for.
