I'm quite happy with this lens. I'm uber new to my 40D and this lens so take that into consideration, but for the price, I'm very pleased with it. Just walked out onto the deck and snapped the neighbors gazebo. Just got the camera and lens yesterday.

Any thoughts on how the 55-250 lens would do on a Canon 50D camera? I am looking for a relatively lightweight lens that would give us more reach + IS than our Tamron 18-200 zoom. Will be taking a Rebel XT and the Canon 50D to Alaska this summer. I have tried the Tamron 18-270 (great reach, slower focus) and Canon 70-200 2.8 L IS (too heavy, too expensive).

Love seeing all the photos. Thanks!

I was surprised by this lens tonight. This is straight from camera. I was at least 100 feet from stage and it was dark besides light shining on the stage.

The 55-250 works well on the 50D. I have this combo, and I also have the 70-200 2.8L IS - but non of the Tamrons you mention.

I also have an XSi / 450D. I like the 55-250 better on my 50D than the 450D. I don't know if its just my imagination but it seems to lock focus better/faster. I had not pixel peep'ed too much with pics from my 55-250 on the 50D but in comparison with it on my 450D, it seems the IQ is better too. Maybe it has to do with the fact that my 55-250 front focuses just a hair at anything above 215 mm, and I've corrected that with the 50D AF microadjust thing-a-majig. Can't correct it on the 450D..

I'm pretty sure you'd be happy with it on the 50D. I am. But having said that, I'm even more happy with the 70-200 on my 50D. ;)

Another moon shot with the nifty.

It was my first attempt. I am very impressed with this cheap, 2nd hand lens!

just received mine, first impression is good. did not get the chance to try it outside in daylight. here are few shots with minimal or no adjustments. i also want to mention that lighting was not the best and i think the lens did a good job here.
