Re: The 55-200 is one of my favorite lenses. BONUS savings....

I imagine with the new 70-300mm hitting the streets next month, the used price of these awesome 55-200mm lenses should drop a fair bit - maybe they'll be able to be had in the 350 - 400 (USD) range in super condition.

In my opinion the 55-200 is outstanding for tele-landscapes and close range subject isolation.  Not so much for distant wildlife - too much cropping involved.   I have MANY wildlife shots from past trips where 200mm just wasn't enough to cut it, but anything moderate to close, this lens is fabulous.

Highly recommended!

Again, thanks to tkBennett for sharning.
