    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Canon-55-250mm-4-0-5-6-Telephoto-Digital/dp/B0011NVMO8/ref=sr_1_1?s=photo&ie=UTF8&qid=1278714344&sr=1-1"]Amazon.com: Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras: Camera & Photo[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Canon-75-300mm-4-5-6-Telephoto-Cameras/dp/B00004THD0/ref=sr_1_4?s=photo&ie=UTF8&qid=1278714344&sr=1-4"]Amazon.com: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras: Camera & Photo[/ame]

    so am thinking the 75-300 is nice lens with metallic mount i belive not sure but without IS!!,, and 55-250 more $, plastic mount BUT its got IS , i just afraid if i choose 75-300 i am goint to havta use tripod everytime, and the reason why am choosing between those two because am on super budget lol i like prices ...... i would get 70-300 IS but its 650$.
    also which one is more sharper?(55-250 or 75-300)

    What lens do you currently own/use?

    What are you photographing?

    I have the 75-300 non IS non USM and you have to use it at F8 to get marginal results. I say save your money until you can get a better lens like the 70-200f4 L [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Canon-70-200mm-Telephoto-Zoom-Cameras/dp/B000053HH5/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1278789737&sr=8-1]Amazon.com: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras: Electronics[/ame]

    Its quite a bit more but well worth it.

    The 55-250 is a terrific first telephoto zoom. It works well close and at a distance. I have this and the 70-300mm IS USM. Although the 70-300 is clearly superior in many ways, the 55-250 is far better at closeup, near macro, shots of flowers, bugs, etc. And it's a lot lighter and is more compact.
