Well everything is going fast. The 50-135 is sold and tomorrow my brandnew DA*200mm/f2.8 is coming. I hope I don't miss the zoom to much. Or else I hope that Ricoh gives it a soon upgrade with SDM-II and I buy it again new.

I now also have a nice set off lenses that for a Full frame camera. So Ricoh, let's do it and jump into it.
Hey Ron, how are you liking the DA*200? I just ordered mine. I'm chomping at the bit....

Well I'm still getting used to it, but it is a lovely lens. Didn't compare yet at 200mm with the 60-250mm (I have a feeling that the zoom is sharper), but it is lovely small next to it. Maybe next sunday on the run with it.

Well the DA*200mm/f2.8 made a move out of my house (to slow on AF) and in return I got a Sigma 70-200mm/f2.8 EX DG OS HSM. The 200mm is wonderful sharp, so a SDM-II version of it would be in my bag fast.

That's too bad...How does it compare in focussing speed to the DA*300?
