    First post here, hi all. Not new to photography really. I have a canon rebel XS with the standard 18-55 lens. I'm looking for a telephoto zoom lens and I'm unsure which one would do me the best. Somebody has told me this is a good buy: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/347531-REG/Tamron_AF061C700_28_300mm_f_3_5_6_3_XR_Di.html

    But I also heard canon makes good lenses, such as this Canon | 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM Autofocus Lens | 2565A003 | B&H

    So any type of help is appreciated. If it matters, im just a casual photographer. Thanks

    thanks for the replies, but I was interested in what's better? I am somewhat leaning towards the Tamron. Any thoughts?

    IMO get the 55-250 IS, it goes perfect with the 18-55
