Got my DA 50-200 today, found it impossible to use....

But only because it arrived before my k100d.

Talk about your misleading thread titles. Sorry, that was not nice of me.

I expect delivery of the k100d tomorrow, anticipate sleeping poorly tonight.

LOL.

I recently picked up a 50-200, I was quite impressed with size & weight, compared to my F70-210. Nice pictures too.

Davek,
How do you rate the picture quality of the DA50-200 vs. the F70-210?

I think at the center they both seemed around the same to me, around the edges esp wide open the 70-210 does edge the 50-200 out a little.. But you pay for it in weight and size.. It isn't enough of a difference to be worth it for me...

My 70-210 is sold now so I can't show any examples, sorry..

I'd say that joele's experience is the same as mine. I didn't really plan on buying the 50-200, but my 70-210 locked up (wouldn't zoom) one week before I left on holidays. I needed to take something.

Thanks, Joele and Davek. I'll stick with my F70-210 until my back starts hurting!
