Yes, there have been a ton of advances in image quality over the years... HOWEVER... those improvements don't only apply to lenses with a huge zoom range, but also apply to lenses with a short zoom range or no zoom at all (primes). While a modern 28-200 lens may still be better at some ranges than a cheap lens with a much shorter zoom range from 30 years ...

Are you looking for something like this? Basically the 300mm gets you closer to your subject. The magnification is greater than with a 200mm focal length! Hope that helps somehow!

A greater zoom range means a more complex design at greatly increased cost. There are some excellent lenses make for broadcast with incredible zoom ranges, like the Fujinon 8-832mm (yes that's not a typo!), but you don't want to know the price. Designing a lens with a larger zoom range at a lower price does lead to compromises on quality. Finally lens ...

I bought my (older) Canon 55-250 IS refurbished, and I think it's done very well for me. Just a few examples here. I do not have experience with the Tamron or Sigma equivalents, but I consider mine good value for money. I'm using it with the 500D/T1i.

Well, I'd say they are, telephoto lenses can get insanely heavy. If you want something lightweight, the EF 70-200mm f/4 L is reasonably light and gives a reasonable image quality. Costs around 700USD. If you want excellent image quality, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II is just one of the most amazing lenses you can get (Assuming you can actually pay ~$2500 ...

I personally use only Canon lenses, for this reason I can't compare Canon with other brands, like the already mentioned. However, Canon produces very good to excellent zoom lenses. One example of a cheap lens is 55-250mm (here are different versions of this lens: ...

The short answer is yes, they are trustworthy but your question seems to be more orientated towards the 'should you go for the cheaper version' kind of area. In some cases, people would consider the Tamron/Sigma equivalent to be better, but that's subjective and can take into account many things such as build quality, features, price and of course picture ...

Honestly bro they both are very good Brand but for being 3rd party we regret their power and goodness :) i think One's need of lens depend on For which purpose he wants to use Choosing a Perfect Lens for the Camera Budget for the lens brand ...

While DXoMark's scores are never the only thing to go on, the general consensus of their results matches up with conventional wisdom, though not by as much as would normally be expected. Since the 55-300 covers a longer total range than the 70-200 it pays a slight price in overall image quality. When wide, the 300 mm seems to suffer particularly strongly ...

When you zoom, you will see some numbers on the lens: Read them carefully! It says on the left side and right side: LEFT SIDE RIGHT SIDE equiv.135 80mm 14.4mm 135 24.4mm 200 35.9mm 300 53.9mm 500 89.8mm 830 149.1mm
