you should go for an 18-135STM...

i'd still hold onto the 55-250IS if you need a nice lightweight travel lens

I have a friend who just bought a Tamron 18-270 PZD to go on his 50D and it really is producing some great quality photos. I've tried it on my 7D and the IQ is every bit as good as the 55-250 IS that I had. TBH if I didn't have a FF camera then I would have got one straight away.

I had a Tamron 28-300 VC a while back, but sold it because I needed a longer lens for aviation shots, and that gave me some great shots too on a 550D and a 7D. I never got to try it on my 5D2 or 5D3 but I think it would of been outstanding on either body. I bought a Sigma 150-500 OS for my aviation shots and now use it for wildlife and bird shots too and that is a fantastic lens.

O.k. I give up. There is no benefit to upgrading this lens to anything else, except a superzoom. However, in my research on the superzooms, it would be a benefit from convenience, but no an increase in IQ. So I am gonna stick with the set of lenses I have.

Thanks all for your opinions and your help.
