Re: 50-200 or 55-300 ?

Agree with assessment above, although the more I use it the more I think the 50-200 is much better than "just OK". It's main advantage is that it is small and (in WR guise) usable in rubbish weather. The 55-300 is a better performer at longer lengths, although it is much larger, not WR, and can be irritatingly slow to focus (best to use quick shift to help it along).
