Question about Lens Quality

Hi everyone! Question/survey time again lol.

I’m trying to decide what to get for a telephoto zoom lens for my Canon Rebel XT. I’ve noticed it seems like the Canon lenses are more expensive or just as expensive as others, like Tamron or Sigma.

I’d really like to keep the price below $250 but I want the max zoom to be 250 to 300mm.

My question is, what lenses do you have? How is the quality of Canon lenses vs Tamron lenses vs Sigma lenses? What would you recommend?

I’m new to the lens world and that was always the unit in physics that gave me the most problems, just can’t seem to wrap my brain around all of it, but I want to be sure I get a good quality lens.

Thank you all in advance!
