changed my tele zoom to the (now very cheap) 55-200 vr. Its much better than my even cheaper Sigma version, plus it has the much needed VR!!
Shame I didn't notice till I got back home that I had the vr switched off... hey ho haha
I think the lens is very good quality even though it doesn't feel like it in the hand; rich colour, pleasing bokeh, very sharp and ultra portable.
