A year ago I had three DA 50-200's in hand at the same time and did some comparison shoots over a weeks time. Two were nearly identical in results and as reported above. The third was definitely a notch or two above the norm. I'd compare it with a good DA 16-45 rather than a DA 18-55 for IQ.

THAT one I kept! Still, it's no better than a DAL 55-300 I have and not being WR it will likely move on one of these days.
