Yup, there isn't a significant price difference between the two, but the difference in sharpness in like night and day. The 75-300 seems to be geared so it's sharper at 75mm whereas the 55-250 seems to be sharpest around 200mm.

Most importantly, the minimum focusing distance for the 75-300 sucks big time. So you'll be frustrated using that lens when you're anywhere near the subject.
