I dare to say it s a good and sharp lens, pretty free from distortions. I like the range it has, but the AF is slow.

Dear Scott,

I have not compared them directly, but I think they are in the same league in terms of speed.

Here are some pics that I have taken with my 55-200. I really haven't taken full advantage of this lens yet. I've been giving more attention to my 50mm 1.8 lens instead.

I handled one this weekend.

My purpose in going into the shop that day was to but the wow-whata-lens old MF 105mmf/2.5 that is dazzling me at the moment. (I'm fondling it as I type...makes me feel more virile).

Compared to most Nikkors, notably that day the old 105, it feels like a toy with the plastic mount and construction, but if it compares favorably in performance to the 24-120 at 100mm and to the 70-300ED at 200mm it would make a great light walkabout lens.

Maybe for $250 I'm hoping for too much...anybody really looked at this new offering??

Nburwell: have you tested it against the 50.1.8 at, say, f/5.6? If it even aproaches the 50 prime that would be most impressive.
