You didn't say what your budget was, but if you can afford it you can get a EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM (list price of $649.99), for about $300 new or slightly used, on craigslist, or here on POTN. The reason they are selling for so cheap is that they were kit lenses with the 5DIII a few months ago and a lot of people who didn't need them were selling to offset the cost of their 5DIII. I bought one last August, brand new in the box with all documents and an unexpired warranty card. -rick

A little late to the conversation but thought I'd add my 2 cents as well in case someone stumbles in later. I bought the 75-300 when I first invested in Canon's DSLRs about 5 years ago. I reached its limitations very quickly and its spent most of its time with me in the camera bag. Honestly not sure why I haven't tried to sell it, will most likely lend it out to aspiring photographer friends so they can get some practice with a telephoto without my worrying about them breaking it.

There are two versions of the Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS lens. The newer version has "II" at the end of the name to signify "mark 2" or the second version. Both versions are essentially the same as far as image quality and only differ in minor cosmetic changes. You should be able to get a used one for $150 or less. I bought a refurbished one for $199 a couple years ago. If you buy new you'll get a one year warranty.
