A friend of mine has 2 lenses chosen and wants to know which one is better. I don't have any experience with either of them.

1. EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II
2. EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM

Camera body: EOS 550D

Do you have any experience with these? I'd like to know about image sharpness, focus acquiring speed and chromatic problems with these lenses. They are very low cost, of course. Minor chromatic problems aren't an issue for him. But images should be sharp at all focal lengths. So what do you think? Are these okay for stock photography?

Here you have 2 reviews of that lens. The reviews of lensen on that site are quite reliable. Myself, I have the EF-S55-250 f/4-5.6 IS II which is very satisfactory for its price (However, I will upgrade it in the near future).

I would go for the EF-S-55-250

I have no idea, however, my friend has the 75-300 and she said she wishes she had gotten the 55-250. Because the 250 has a stabilizer.

the 55-250 is the better of the two in my opinion....what I would suggest that if at all possible is for him to wait a bit and save for the 70-200 f4 get good second hand copies.

There is a 70-300 version with stabilizer, dont get a telephoto without it unless you are willing to take all your images with a tripod
