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 :angry: (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! :bsmilie: Hopefully the first and last time I meet the :angry: shopowners will be when I get the lens from them :sweat:

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. :bsmilie:
