Because of focusing issues or other?

That too but mainly because of soft images at 200mm. In not-so-ideal lighting, the lens struggles to perform wide open.

Yeah.....my daughter does that to me everytime I use the wrong designation for whatever plane it is she's training in at that time too, so you're in good company . Just call me Air Force and Navy-challenged.

I have had this lens for six months or more but this was the first time I used it. I'm not real nuts about going out in the cold to take pictures but that day was pretty mild. So far I am very happy with the lens and especially at the price. I bought this reconditioned by OLY from B&H Camera for under 200 bucks.

James, like the others have said, these are nice images..... very sharp. I'm glad you are giving ASP a go, it really is good code and I think you will learn to like it.

Good job on these, show us more.

It has been raining here now for 24-hours and we've only between 3 - 4 inches. Supposed to clear out tomorrow but this has been the bestest wet we've had for a long time so I should not complain of cabin fever........... but I am and waiting on the sun.
