Concerning the 55-200 - it is good for the price (it is VERY cheap), but optically the 40-150 (new or old) are better and also more costly.
Well eventually, the 40-150 mm is cheaper as a kitlens. If you buy it not as kit, it is a lot more expensive. So I doubt between these lenses. I want some wide angle
. but also a lens that is good at night
, at a good zoom
. So I don't know what to get. Those are the first lenses I am going to buy. (Camera also)
Im sure that I will buy the 14-42, but not really sure about the 40-150 or 55-200. Can you say what would be the best choice to me?
So hope somebody can help me further
