thanks for your input.
i just want to say i got my lens yesterday, the non-swd version and it. is. awesome. i'm glad i didn't get the swd, extra money, this thing is fast enough. produces beautiful images. heavy as ever, but my biceps will look great this summer.
this really could be my walk around lens. normally i keep my 50 on my 620, but the 50-200 will cover my out and about shots.
now i just need a gun license. i'm nervous about getting robbed.
oh and seriously, what am i going to do with the carrying case it came in, uh, i have a camera bag. it's nice, but does anyone ever use it? it's in the closet.
