you should go for an 18-135STM...
i'd still hold onto the 55-250IS if you need a nice lightweight travel lens
happy with myself for not saying anything stupid

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.

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.
