Re: very good fully open some CAs

Pics look great, Sandglass, and it's my understanding the DA* 200 really IS an outstanding lens, as are all FIVE DA* lenses.

In my case, being someone who seems to ALWAYS want "just a little more reach" and who can never afford to get every lens, I opted to spend just a bit more and get the DA* 300. Even though its fastest aperture is F 4, it's still a fantastic lens, and with the high ISOs AND image stabilization available with today's cameras, that extra F-stop is never an issue for me (hasn't been for anyone else I know who has it, either -- and there are LOADS of folks here who have and love that lens -- they're the ones who talked ME into getting it  ).

At any rate, enjoy your 200. Sometimes 200 IS just right. I don't have any 200 lenses, although I have a couple of zooms that go through that focal length. Neither of them is a "fast" lens, nor certainly anywhere near DA* quality, though. But I get by.

Keep on shootin'!
