55-200 mm -Diamond in the rough!
The Nikon 55-200mm lens is a wonderful find. It's light weight fast focus and as sharp as any of my other digtal lenses. I had read a few reviews and decided to give it a chance. I did a focus test and found it was as sharp as my $1000 lens. The only lens it didn't quite match the sharpness of was my 80-200mm AF Nikkor lens I have from AF film camera which can also be used with digital. The draw back to the 80-200 is the weight and for hiking or backpacking the 55-200 is perfect. I definitely recommend this lens but as with any digital equipment it should be test before use to make sure it's what you want.
