    There is only one Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS lens. There are a couple of reasons you got yours cheaper,

    1) Harvey Norman's own promotion,
    2) The salesman in Harvey Norman make a mistake.
    3) The point of time you buy your lens, there is a promotion by Canon because now and then, Canon would come out with very attractive PWP pricing for all their camera.
    4) You bought during the Great Singapore Sales whereby there are special pricing for Canon's product (no matter which shops you bought your camera from).

    I see though how come there a price different on the same lens wif same pwp promo, think must be their in house promo.

    I read the EF-S 55-250mm is coming up with a refresh. If you are the kind of 'I want latest make' person, I suggest u to get a couple of months later?

    Yes all have autofocus. I'm not sure what you mean by 'scenery' but if you are looking at taking landscape, you should get a wider lens. The kit lens actually does it. The lens you mentioned are more for telephoto (75-300 and 55-250) and portrait (50mm). My 2 cents worth

    I think it's pretty hard to estimate what kind of scenery to shoot? Suitability of each lens in shooting a scene depends on each individual scenario and each individual user, and there are many ways of using a telephoto like a 75-300 or a 55-250. Anyway typically the 75-300 and 55-250 are often used to shoot distant objects (like birds or any far away things you could possibly imagine?). Between these two I find he 55-250 superior due to IS, at such a long focal length IS is important for handheld shots, unless you use a tripod all the time. 50mm 1.8 is a large aperture lens, so people usually use it for low light shots? However, I'd like to emphasize again that how you use these lenses really depends on the photographer, you can't define it with suitability of scenery.

    Hope that answers your question!

    First... there is no definite answer to what the lens are used for... what scenary and whatnot... the type of pic however can be found readily online with a simple googling.

    And yes... all these lens come with AF.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    thanks. it answer my doubt. by the way, am i right to say EF 75-300 III USM len does not have image stabilization? which mean if i taking photo without use of tripod, there might be a high chance the image come out to be blurry? and compare to 55-250, 75-300 can shoot more distant object? thanks.

    I noticed you have been asking questions without hands on with the camera and lens. The truth is you can't learn much without hands-on. If you are willing to make a dive now I highly recommend you to start with any DSLR model with kit lens and 50mm f1.8. Learn the basics and everything will be clearer. And google for more information. We all start from somewhere. Internet has made it easier

    There is no fixed rule when it come to type of lens and focal length you should use. But here is a general guide...

    Focal Lengths* Lens Type Photography Type
    Less than 20mm Extreme Wide Angle Architecture
    21mm - 35mm Wide Angle Landscape
    35mm-70mm Normal Street and Documentary
    80mm-135mm Medium Telephoto Portraiture
    135mm-300mm Telephoto Sports and Wildlife
    Greater than 300mm Super Telephoto Wildlife
