    Really nice Pete! That third shot in particular has beautiful color and is very clean.

    Those are some really crisp images... I've resisted the 55-200mm so far because I prefer primes on the X series, but it sure looks like a winner in the optics department :) Tons of detail in the water droplets and bird feathers.

    Amen to what Jay has just written. Wow - that closeup of the white flower really blows me away. That said, I'm very interested in how this lens works at the long end - and seeing the birds is a big draw. Many thanks!

    Thanks Jay and BB. Bearing in mind I have permanent PD tremor......these were hand held AND at the thick end of the focal range. God bless 4 stop IS.

    Impressive clarity and colour Peter. I'm still very tempted by the X-E1. :p

    Pete, I'd forgotten that and you're right this makes your images even more impressive for being hand held and at that range. Well done and I look forward to more!

    Bill, I've been tempted by this camera from day one...but resist a while longer, I must.:dash2::026::wink_old:
