New zoom lens


Active Member
I'm looking to purchase a good zoom lens to partner my Tamron 90 macro lens. The two lenses that I like the look of are....

Tamron 28-200 mm F3.5/5.6 XR Di
Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS

So which is better, the Tamron 28-200 mm F3.5/5.6 XR Di or the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS. There's only one way to find out... FIGHT!

I have been looking at the 55-250mm as my next lense. Looks good for the price but being a nebie this is more opinion than any foundation.
