I haven't had a chance to shoot much with the 70-300ED or the 55-200DX that I'm checking out thanks to Ritz's allowing me this opportunity (course,they have my money :lol: ) But, my inclination is to not keep the 70-300 simply because of its weight. Also, what are the advantages/disadvantages of the rotating lens? Although I thought the 28-200G was off the table, I've been reading reviews and most are favorable for it as an inexpensive, yet good quality walking around lens. This is what I'm looking for, particularly light in weight. I'm inclined to get the 28-200 and wait for Nikon to release a lighter DX version of the 70-300, which kind of makes sense to me, if only me :wink: By the way, does the 28-200 have a rotating lens?
