If you're meticulous about things like pre-measuring distance, maintaining fast shutter speeds, and are really good with timing, you can still get good results with the 55-250.
And I used to own two different copies of the EF 28-135. You get what you pay for with it, but it's actually a pretty decent lens! I would take it over the 55-250 any day, mostly because of USM and better build quality.
