    no real surprise, but yeah u should probably use a tripod

    or at least shoot in manual mode so ur using the same shutter speed/ f-stop for both

    what f stop? you didn't shoot at f/5.6 did you? cuz that's wide open. and that 55-200 SUCKS wide open at any length

    -edit- yes, you did. wtf. of course the 80-200 is going to be sharper. not just because it's a WAY better lens, but just purely because you're shooting the 55-200 at it's extreme end wide open. what did you expect. close to f/8 and report back

    This test sucks :o

    Must shoot in M.

    ISO, f/stop, shutter, WB all must be set manually
