If I were in your situation, I'd be asking myself the following questions:

Is size/weight important? That is where EFS lenses really shine if those elements are important. And there may not be a single answer for you. For instance, I love the 55-250 on my 80D when I'm traveling exactly because it's smaller, lighter and cheaper (theft risk).

Ditto me and my 55-250 + 40D.

... The 70-300 is a mid-range zoom compatible with full-frame. Much of its size and weight won't even be "used" by the APS-C 90D. But if that's not much of a concern for you, then skip this question entirely.

Besides the little longer reach to 300mm, one extra feature that comes from using the full-frame lens is less light fall off/vignetting.

(the 70-300 is on a full frame body, but there is smaller box to show the effect on a "crop" body)
