I owned both the 55-250 and 70-300VC at the same time with the intention of having the Tamron as the upgrade, but I found the IQ of the 55-250 to be just as good if not better than the example of the Tamron I had. This is also a seldom used range so I'm happy keeping the two fifty and investing the $'s into more useful areas of my range.
Yeah, I am the same way. I keep thinking I should upgrade the 55-250, but I was looking back through my library and the last time I shot longer than 200mm was 9 months ago! Hard to justify dropping $1000+ on a stabilized upgrade when I use it 2x a year. Plus, like you said, some of the upgrades are not as big of leaps as you'd like for the money.
