    This lens was $99 (on sales) at Target couple weeks ago while the 55-250 IS lens was $149

    Yeah, I caught the 55-250 and bought it. If I had known this one was on sale for even cheaper I would have been all over that. Dang it! Thanks for the feedback about the price though. Now I have a better baseline to judge the price of this by =)

    If you already have the 55-250mm lens, do worry about the 75-300mm III lens. From what I read, yours is optically better anyway. :)

    Oh, I was not planning on getting the other one. WAY too much overlap. I was just mentioning it because I thought it was a great deal. Seemed like that lens should cost more than 55-250, but I guess I was wrong. I was just trying to share what I thought was a good deal =)
