    The extra range, maybe?
    Apart from that I agree. I have seen K1W1's sport shots before with that 55-200. I might sell my cheapo 70-300 which I bought just because it was so cheap, and then get a copy of 55-200 instead while I still can. It will be more suitable for my son's U7 soccer games. One day we all feel we have enough lenses.

    K1W1, What's exif data on the boy with the helmet? I can see the effect of VR at work.

    I'm not sure whether VR would have been turned on. Generally for sports stuff I have it off.

    It's a sharp lens nonetheless. Why did you turn off VR since you shoot hand held anyway?
    I am looking at a 55-200 VR on DDphoto right now.. .............. Like I said... I would go Tammy only if longer range is more important.

    For about 1/500 sec or faster VR is no use and slows focus acquisition down. I hardly ever use it on the 70-200. It's a case of what works for each person I guess.

    I'm just curious, that's all. I thought there might be other technical reasons that VR should be turn off for action shots.

    K1W1 wow amazing photos thank you for posting these I think I am going to go with the Nikon it just seems to be a better lens and even looking at the customer photos on amazon they seem much crisper and clearer then the Tamron. I really love those shots and it looks like this lens will do what I want and work well for me.

    Thank you so much,
    Jana
