    Picked this one up on CL for $440 with tripod mount, hood, bag, b&w filter and 5 years left on the warranty. Not bad for low light and reach.

    hot damn. my long range is the most lacking. using the nikon 55-200 VR 4-5.6. it gets it done in daylight, but i obviously want to move up some time in the future.

    You're still probably doing better than me, all I got now is a nifty fifty and the 70-200 :wtc:
    I added a few more to the OP.

    yeah for a few months i was stuck with the 11-16 and 55-200 with only a 35 1.8 and 50 1.8 in the middle. uggh. the 17-50 hasn't really come off for the most part

    The only thing with the Tammy 70-200 is normal Tammy complaint of slow AF so definitely sucks for fast moving.

    I also have frustrations with trying to shoot a bird using single AF point (basically when out of focus you cannot see shit so I have no clue where the subject is). I have found that cranking back on the focus ring, spin until you see your subject, pushing forward on the AF ring (activates AF), and then getting the subject in my focal point.

    I usually keep it on AV with the 70-200 on stopped down to 2.8 pushed back to 70mm and it will hit my focus point pretty fast and just zoom in from there. Its not L quality on build / auto focus, but great IQ and low light ability for the price.

    I may try that trick next because that seems way easier than how I do it. I just adapted what I do with the macro lens to the 70-200.

    I definitely like the lens especially for 1/3 the cost of the Nikon.

    Keep in mind that I'm pretty noobish to auto focus, I mainly shot film/manual focus until about a week or 2 ago so take my ideas with a grain of salt :o

    I am noobish to cameras in general so I will take any ideas.

    Plus my eyes suck so if I try manual it always comes out blurry as hell.

    you should pick up the kit 18-55is to start with
    they arent great, but they are cheap and when you upgrade you can sell it for what you paid

    I think there is a "brand new" one on CL right now for $95.. I imagine you could get it for a little less, or you can get them cheaper if they are more used

    manual focus with the eye viewfinder is hit or miss for me... sometimes it looks fine on the lcd but on my laptop looks too blurry :hs: any way to fix that? or just more practice?
