@Gapton what has changed in IS? – Imre Dec 20 '11 at 9:05
@Swetha - Welcome to photo stack exchange, it looks like this question has already been asked, so we will point you to the above answer by Imre that already has solutions. Thanks for the question and please ask more! – dpollitt Dec 20 '11 at 15:16

The specifications are identical:

  1. Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS
  2. Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II

While I haven't used or seen reviews of the new II version, the new version is unlikely to have significant changes to the optic quality. There's a discussion here on this topic. Possible changes involve a minor adjustment to the IS algorithm to allow different behaviour when panning and/or minor lens coating changes.
