Plan B. Sell both for the 45-175 X. Assuming you can put up with being 25mm short in the tele end, and don't object the lens (go try it out somewhere that's not Jessops!).

Objectively its the best lens out of the lot, and price wise, is only £20 more than a 45-150. (but see warning above on the bad press it's been getting...) Though new 46mm filters will be another hidden cost...

I know that the 45-200 isn't stellar at the 200mm end but, if it is sharper at 150mm than the 45-150, that would probably push me towards keeping it, despite its bulk.

I'm interested in the 45-200 as well. Can anyone compare these:

45-150 @ 150 mm

45-175 X @ 150 mm, 175 mm

45-200 @ 150 mm, 175 mm

Also, are all these internal focusing lenses? The 45-175 X does not extend to zoom. What about the 45-200? I intend to use them handheld and I want to make sure AF or zooming do not interfere with holding the camera and lens stable.

Is the 45-175 X the only one with reported shutter shock issues?
