Agrre the lens is good value. I bought mine at a photo show for £199. Focus no problem on swan shot but I suppose focussing on a slowly moving white bird against a dark background isn't the hardest problem in the world. Taken just after a very poor dawn so the scene was dark.Would be nicer if lens had a larger apperture but that would make it larger, heavier and more expensive. No problems with build quality. Nice deep lens hood allows contre jour shots without flare.


The landscape photo is beautiful!  Incredible detail.  I too ordered a 50-230 because I could not justify the higher priced 55-200.  The 50-230 is $399 and the 55-200 is $699!  Willl post photos when I get the lens.
