In an act to trim down my gear, I actually sold this lens to a user in Canada. One month after the sale, I could not resist the temptation in buying it back about the similar price that I sold it for. The lens is reasonable in picture quality and I have great liking of the lens for few areas:

  • Portraits -- that is right, I like to use this lens for my boys' portraits. It has similar color and quality with my Tamron 70-300 Di LD Macro in the range from 50mm to 150mm. It is quite sharp for its price and the lens has much less occurrences of CA.

  • Lightweight -- I use this lens for walk around purpose with an emphasis on portraits and longer need as in hiking

  • Close focusing is quite alright with this lens. I may invest a Raynox 250/150 macro adapter.
Here are few pictures with my boys when they don't pay attention to my shooting, which is key to taking my boys' photos successfully without them playing hike and seek from my camera.

I may be making the wrong decision as I do have few overlapping lens, but one thing that I know for sure that the DA 50-200 stands out among my overlapping zoom lens is on its lightweight and highly usable focal range.
