Perforrmance of 50-200...samples

Received the lens this morning, threw it on, stepped outside, and shot a street sign in front of the house maybe 50' away. Hand-held, OIS on, fully-auto everything. F5.6, 1/400. ISO 200. This is a 100% crop completely unprocessed, straight out of the camera (20MP, JPG ultrafine). I'm impressed.

Another one maybe 100 yards away. Same settings and shooting method.

The edges and corners, of course, aren't as sharp, but I'm still impressed for a fully-auto, image-stabilized long zoom that cost me $206 new!!!!!!!!!!!
