Well done Canon!

All the new STM lenses have so far been impressive, and I trust it's the same for the 55-250mm IS STM.

And, I think Canon has released a great set of PowerShots - covering various users' needs and preferences.  Exciting times!

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

Sorry but imo, the point and shoot lines are just crazy...
Why they keep on releasing G series when all they do is releasing very similar picture quality?

The MTF are up for it now. Looks, wide open, better than the 70-200 f/4 IS at the wide end (other than for far corners) and at the long end too(!) for center and center mid-frame although worse at near and far edges and corners there.

Of course the 55-250 is slower at the long end though and aps-c only and has slower AF.

MTF charts for new model, old model, 70-300L on crop, 70-300L on full frame.

Am I right to think the new one is a distinct step up in IQ? And, if not a match, it's not embarrassed by the L?
