The 55-200 is my least thought of lens. Sitting in the bottom of my bag of lenses I really only bring it out when I go to the mortocross track. There I basically beat the crap out of it, letting it get dusty, wet, using my sleeve to wipe of the dust... and everytime I walk away amazed at the quality of the images! Mind you, in insufficient light, it's another story but when light isn't a problem this lens is fantastic, especially at the price!

 

Here are some pics of a Red Bull Rocks and Logs event this weekend. Ideally, you want to have the rider coming at you but unfortunately due to the limited access for spectators we were unable to see them coming for the good parts!

Yeah, this lens is a kind of sleeper lens. You always forget to bringing it along, but its pictures are quite stunning at some moments.

Also for portaits it's a very nice one actually. Not always as bitingly sharp as the primes, but very versatile and a pleasant rendering and sharpness rolloff.
