Oops - sorry Vic it was Mrflash who commented on the 55 and 135 lenses - not you!


Yes, I'm more in the other camp. I think the IQ of the 18-55 is a little better and the wider aperture a plus. At the long end the 55-200 surpasses it. Basically too much of a compromise (and price) for a comparatively modest zoom range - the comparison being with a Tammy 28-300mm on Nikon FF/APS which always surprised me with the quality of its output.
