I saw it for only $169 (aftera $50rebate). Is it worth the money? I (my eyes and my wallet)am satisfied with the DA 18-55mm kit lens's capabilities (for now),doesthe 50-200mm offer the same level of quality?
Also, just so I have a benchmark to go by, how muchdoes it cost to get the "next step up" from this lens (as far as new lenses go)? Are we talking about somewhere inthe $900 range at that point?
