    Well I picked up a Black Gen II version in what should be mint- condition for a Buck 90. Hope I can do it justice. Great shots on here.

    Tim, your high-end background is going to make you unhappy with the AF speed, I am quite sure. It's not glacial, but it's not a sprinter either. For the price, and the optical performance, those of us who find workarounds wind up finding the lens indispensable. But it's not going to pin down something moving quickly time after time, quickly and easily. I've probably rambled already here about my shortcuts, holler if you can't find them, or want any suggestions.

    Thanks Kyle, I have prepared myself for some setbacks but for the price I'm willing to try and learn my way around this thing. I'll look up your tips while I wait for the postman.

    50-230 came in today. It's not snappy but I think I can get around with it. Taking it out tomorrow. Had the 18-55 on my camera when I changed lens and had to notice the 18-55 was heavier.

    The 50-230 is a featherweight.

    The first time you look through the 50-230 at 50, and then zoom alllll the way in... "oh DAMN."

    This is the second time this Osprey has flown into the viewfinder while I was focused on the mate and chick. I hit the trigger so hard I'm surprised the nest was that sharp. If I had set my shutter speed a click or two faster I would have a decent pic I could have worked with. I like the wing movement but I just couldn't get the rest of the bird clear enough in post.

    I always put in some time with the 50-230 at the charity golf tournament I shoot every year.

    Wow @Tim Williams@Tim Williams that osprey picture is so close - the wing movement is really something.
