haha yah that 80-200 is nice. played with a 70-200 f/2.8 [altho newer version of the 80-200 but should still be nice] the 55-200 is favored by a lot of people. esp since its pretty cheap for something that covers up to 200mm for like 200 - 250 bux for the VR version.
I always forget to test convert my images to B&W.
I still don't see the point in taking pictures in B&W mode when you are basically getting all the color data from the sensor and throwing it away.
I like B&W pictures but the effect can be added later using almost any photo editor
, and then you still have the color version if you want to use it for something else.
yeah, the 55-200 has some great value, but I can definitely see myself upgrading bodies at some point in the semi-near future, so I may as well get a lens that will work properly on an Full-frame sensor.
I have to say that the metal body really feels much better than the plastic lenses.
It makes my camera body feel cheap, and my camera is one of the better entry level ones (I've used my friends' canon XS(etc) series cameras and they feel cheaper than mine for sure)
