Truly great OSS of the 55-210mm, good resolution @ max zoom & f6.3

I was tempted to lug my smaller/faster primes to NYC - my Canon FD 85mm f1.2, or my Canon LTM 135mm f3.5. But the weight of that kit was more than I wanted to carry, so I took just the 55-210.

Shot in the NY Public Library. Check his eyelashes and pores - 1/30th/210mm handheld is easy with this lens.

Along with the SEL16f28 and UWA, and the 16-55 PZ, an affordable and lightweight 12mm-210 kit.
