Re: 55-250 stm vs 70-300 usm is ii on a 90D

When it comes to telephoto lenses, we always seem to want a bit more reach.  Unfortunately that typically means a lot more expense and weight for a marginal gain.  There really is not going to be much difference between 250 and 300mm.

Personally I am very happy with my 55-250 STM.  I have it either on the camera or on my belt pouch for almost all of my outdoor photo sessions.  It is much better than a bigger lens I would not carry.  In any case if I wanted more I would not buy the 70-300.  Putting a FF lens on a APS-C camera is a waste of weight and money.  You are paying much more for the lens size that the crop sensor cannot use.
