I picked up a 55-250 just under 2 weeks ago and have not really had a tonne of time to play with it yet, but with the nice weather this weekend I got a couple chances.

Taken from my balcony, it is cropped but SOC otherwise.
Handheld.

Nice Anhinga shot -- that should give anyone respect for the 55-250mm.

I took this red squirrel shot last week, from about 50 feet.

Hello,

I'm still very new to photography, but this is one of my first shots with the nifty two-fifty :oops:

Ps: this thread convinced me to get a 55-250mm, such beautiful photos :D

Been hunting bumblebees today. Like this shot, but I'm not too happy about the ghosting to the left of the flower (caused by the wind and long shuttertime with flash).

Very Weird lens. I still do not know how this thing performs so well at 5.6 in low light theaters.
