    Bro Akerue is saving you money. Think about it, after using the 55-250 you want better IQ and longer range. Then you sell the 55-250 and go for 70-300 IS. Then you crave for better IQ and sell the 70-300 IS and buy the 70-200/4 IS. Then you miss the longer range, so you buy a TC. Then you suddenly realize that after fitting a TC, your effective aperture becomes much smaller and you have difficultly getting shutter speeds fast enough, and that you have problems getting focus lock somehow. You somehow figure out that a 70-200/2.8 IS will solve this problem. And you rationalize that on top of getting a lens that will work on a TC, it will also work well as a portrait lens. So you sold the 70-200/4 and bought the 70-200/2.8 IS finally...

    Hahaha. Realised this the game is only the rich. I've to agree to what bro Akerue n u said.

    I believed my skills havent reach the stage whereby i can convince myself that i deserve the 70-200/4 and 70-200/2.8 IS yet (=

    But i will take your advises for future use.

    55-250 2nd hand see if you are lucky to get a good copy at $200. Even if you upgrade I believe the $200 would have been worth getting the 55-250.

    18-200 is not that bad either unlike what many would say, the only thing that bothers me is the distortion between 18 - 24mm.
