    Default Tele lens : help need

    Hey guys I've been planning to get a tele lens for sometime but since there are many tele lens available, I can't really decide. But I would be looking for a lens that could last till the future, as I don't intend to change lens that often. I've a few lens in mind, being the new 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS, 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM, Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/4.0 L and the 70-200mm f/4.0 L IS (if its really worth the extra 800 from the non-IS version). I would really love to test all of them out but I'm sure the shop owner sure black face (as always). Could you guys help me out abit with your experience? May give a rating (upon 10) for each aspect of the lens, mainly the sharpness, focusing speed, build, weight (10 being heaviest and 1 lightest) and cost(how worthy is it).

    Eg: 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS
    Sharpness : 7
    Focusing speed : 7
    Build : 5
    Weight : 5
    Cost : 9

    Thanks! Hopefully the first and last time I meet the shopowners will be when I get the lens from them

    But I heard it useless w/o IS. Esp during events where lighting conditions are dark. I dun think I can handhold 200mm at say 1/40s.

    Haha actually the budget is really tight for 70-200mm f/4 IS and 70-200 f/2.8 non-IS. Hows the 55-250mm vs 70-300mm
