Well, the 70-210 "beercan" lens is quite good, though Af is quite loud. Have you considered an 18-250 lens?

Why not take a look at for the lens reviews.

I'm having problems with that lens hunting.  It can be annoying, and I just go to Manual Focus.  Most of my good shots are Manual Focus anyway. Go past, come in, more, more, watch the focus peaking, and shoot just before I think it is way too close.  5 shots.  That of course is something static.  For birds or women running away screaming I need auto focus.
