Just bought the D50 kit. Have only had it for a couple days but am very happy with it. But, as I want to record sports photography that is often far from the beach where I'm photographing, I need a telephoto lens.

Any thoughts on the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm vs. other telephoto options?
My tendency is to go with this lens as it seems designed for this camera and its image sensor. The price is about right as my limit would probably be $400. I would like something that works well with the automated features of the camera (focus and whatever else).

Also, as this is my first digital SLR, what is the equivelant zoom atf the 200mm end? I thought I had read this was equiv. to a 7x zoom, but hoped it was a bit more (with all the 10X non-SLR cameras popping up).

Thanks in advance for any feedback. Since it is a new camera there are not a lot of production reviews or options on the camera or lenses. (other than the Ken Rockwell site for lens info)

FYI - see my update in the Nikon Lenses forum if you're in the same boat.
