So, the lens is out now, and so far reviews look pretty darn good.

Well until now I was not able to find any test. Do you have some magical url to give ?  :)

While I don't have a technical test per se, from my own experience I can state that the EF-S 55-250 STM blows away the EF 70-300mm IS USM (non-L) in virtually every category aside from the plastic mount.  If you have APS-C and you are using the 70-300 IS USM, the 55-250 STM is a nice upgrade.

 interesting.  I  always held the 55-250  in  high regard  for its price. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

Bryan over at TDP posted the 55-250 STM review:

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-S-55-250mm-f-4-5.6-IS-STM-Lens.aspx

"After using this lens a healthy amount including on a couple of short-duration trips in addition to locally, I have to admit that keeping this lens in my kit has been a consideration for me. The results it delivers are quite good. The 55-250 IS STM is a very good option for those times when traveling light is very highly desirable including trail running, hiking, traveling, etc."

The text where I added the yellow highlight really stood out to me. For Bryan to consider keeping the lens in his kit speaks volumes for this bargain lens.
