I have not seen this deal posted here. Fry's has the Canon EF-S 55-250mm for $149.00. It has been going for a while but was out of stock online and most stores were sold out. However, it is back in stock now for shipping and many stores has it as well.
I have a Rebel XT with the 18-55mm lens, and a Tamron 75-300mm lens. Should I get this lens also?

I wish they had 18-200. Already own 55-250 and it's a great entry-level zoom lens.

skeez said: I have a Rebel XT with the 18-55mm lens, and a Tamron 75-300mm lens. Should I get this lens also?if i were in your situation i would get the canon 55-250mm and sell the tamron. the IS on a telephoto comes in very handy if you are hand holding the lens. if you can get this for $149 you can use this lens for a few years and probably sell it for more than $149.
this is probably the 2nd lowest price found for this lens. last year someone found a price mistake at hhgregg for $99 and i was able to get one for a gift. link to expired $99 deal
Found one 60 miles away.....picked it up this evening

Site said it was in stock at only one of the stores in my area, so I ordered it. Ten minutes later I got the email that said, essentially, "Psych!" because it wasn't in stock. Of course, the site still shows it in stock several hours later.

Got one at the Webster Tx. store yesterday, must have been the last one as today they are out of stock.

Just got one Brand New at Staples for $130 - Call and speak to a CSR, price match to Frys, and use a 30 off 150 coupon
(the first rep wouldn't price match, but I called back and the second one would) Amazing Deal!!

Bamabruin , any store of frys u refered while pricematch ?
i tried so hard to get one from frys.com that showed one location in houston as available but each time i placed an order it would get rejected with no item in stock. I printed the page with qty available at one houston store and called a local Sears store that one item in stock. I managed to convince the staff that they do have it in stock as the website shows the store with qty available and was able to price match and got 110 percent match. i was very desperate to get one and thank my stars for been able to get one when i needed the most. i love Sears. i have recently got few good deals from them. bought a canon xsi only body for 99 dollars.

The Bay Area Fry's seem to have them all back in stock. I just picked one up at the Sacramento store using in store pickup. Good luck to all!

This is an excellent deal, BUT only if you already have a canon dslr. If you plan on getting this and the dslr, there are much better combo deals than getting this separately, like rebel xs plus this lens for around 540.
Awesome, thanks for the in stock update. I've been checking back every day except today. In for 1!

where is this $30 dollars off $150 at Staples found?

Just FYI, the front element rotates, which can be an issue for some. Good value for the money though.

It's supposedly back in stock for pick up in the two Atlanta-area stores. I just placed an order, but I don't fully trust them, as I've had more than one "completed" order cancelled. The EF 75-300 I bought on clearance at Wal-Mart two weeks ago for just under $120 is going back, if Fry's follows through on the order. Thanks, OP.
