55-200mm lens review

This lens are really nice. The 55-200mm offers a good range for a low price, with a good vibration reduction too. The most interessing part it's the Auto Focus speed. It's a really fast AF, what is great to shot animals, however, the manual focus is very lighter and (maybe this is something more personal than technical) I had some trouble to focus manually, because of this high sensibility in the focus ring.

Pros:

  • Low price: Really cheap for such range.
    Good VR: Steady.
    Quick AF: To get moviment, it's good.

Cons:

  • Focus: It could be an f / 3.5.
    Plastic mont: The durability and the resistence are not so nice.

Regardless of the plastic mont, and the focus, it's a great lens. Should be in the basic kit of every photographer.
