Default Just ordered a new lens: Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR

I've been looking for a new telephoto zoom lens for a few months. Just purchased this lens for $199 + $12 shipping. It comes with a UV filter and a cleaning kit. (It was the same price to order it with or without the UV filter and cleaning kit).

I've been scratching my head over whether to order the 55-200mm VR lens or the Nikon 70-300mm VR lens. I've read several reviews that said the 70-300 wasn't very sharp between 200-300mm, and it's bigger and heavier. Several people have said the 55-200mm is a bargain for the price, so... we'll see.

I guess the good news is that glass holds its value, so if I want to upgrade later, I can get most of my money back.

FYI, I'm shooting with a Nikon D200.
