Great deal if you missed the new one bundled with a calculator for ~$300 from Adorama.
If you're considering this versus a 55-250mm IS II, I'd recommend the 70-300. I think the 55-250mm is great for the price, but I'd tell you to pay the extra $100 (right now) to get the better lens. Note that this one will be bigger and heavier. It's not an L, but I think it'll get the job done for most people. (Personally, I'd love to buy the 70-300 L someday.)
