55-200 is on sale, thinking about upgrading from 50-230

....so went to the local camera store to take a few pics with each so I could compare them. Here's a couple of samples. Jpegs SOOC and I just used A mode. A very informal test I know but just wanted to get an idea of how they compare for myself. Of course the 55-200's build is much better. Also it is a stop or so faster. These are big pluses. On the downside its more expensive and is a lot heavier. I did not notice any difference in focusing speed.
