Re: 50-200 or 55-300 ?

I have them all,and i recently got the DA 18-250,its basically stuck to my K7,a good copy can be excellent,sharp close ups at 250,gives lovely bokeh on macro/close shots.The 55-300 is a excellent lens,but i find the slow focus annoying at times.yes the 18-250 focus faster.I had the Tamron version that i sold with my K10D,this copy is much better at least on the K7.I must add that a good copy of the 50-200 is a champ,due to its small size and fast focus.

In summary all can give exceptional results,when you learn their limitations and most importantly a good copy,sample variations often give lenses a bad rap.
