any chance for you to rent/borrow 22-210?

best, jpr2

I'm tempted to rent one, but can't justify pulling the trigger unless I have a dual purpose/event :-).

Actually, I think a fast prime (i.e., 50mm f/1.8) would approximate the DOF test for fast action testing -- I'm considering picking this one up. The problem -- it's that loud silver & apparently the AF drive motors for this lens are not the fastest from what I've read on these forums.

50/1.8 isn't PDAF compatible yet so hold on.

Nice shots though, cute boys!
