Went to the Great NewEngland Airshow today and ended up takeing 519 pics with the 55-200vr. As usual a few for you guys to look at. Unfortunatly the shockwave jet truck ended up crashing. It yawed off into grass going about 200+mph and rolled a few times when only one drag deployed, luckly Kent walked away from the crash.

Thanks, I got lucky with that one. I didn't realize it at the time but when I put the pics on my computer tonight I was like that’s cool and yes all shoots are with the 55-200VR.

Thanks for the comments guys. I think this arishow ended up turning out better pics then any airshow I have been to.

Ya know, even though I acquired a 55-200VR through an order mistake, I decided to keep it because its image quality is very good.

All the photos you posted up show exactly how well this lens performs. A little bit of vignetting, but not too bad, and the sharpness is nothing short of excellent. Great little lens, and cheap too!

Thanks for the shots, they are all great ones, especially the last one.

Mmm Nice F16 shots... My fave is the picture of the undersides of the four flying diamond formation and of course the last one...

I also like the front shot of the Harrier.

Good Stuff!

I agree it absolutely is a great lens. That paired up with my 18-55 makes a great combo. Sometimes I wish I had the 70-300vr for more reach but I have no other complaints about the 55-200vr. Down the road I may go with the new 16-85vr and 70-300vr.

great shots scupking!! just curious.. were you using any filter when you shot those (cir polarizer, uv, etc.). The blue really pops in a lot of those photos (circular polarizer?) and I am filter shopping before a big vacation and i'm trying to learn as much as possible before my purchase.. thanks.

Only filter I had on was the UV. I never take the UV filter off. I did not use a polarizer at this past aishow. The last airshow I was at I did use the polarizer but the shots didn't come out as good as I wanted with the polarizer. It would slow down my shutter to much to get good shots of the jets. However last month on vacation I used the Polarizer 90% of the time and experienced great results. Also never use a polarizer when shooting a sun set, you will not like the results. Polarizers work good when taking shots of nature and things along those lines but for action shots I find it much better to go without the polarizer.

thanks a ton!! :D Very good info.

i didn't mean to hijack your thread.. it's just that i'm heading to the Smokey Mountains next month and I've never used cir. polarizer but I'm hearing that I should get one.. I always just keep a UV on my camera and have loved the results.. I just don't wanna mess up a great photo opportunity.. anyways, back to the topic.. :)

You will love the results with the polarizer in the Smokey Mountains. Also one other thing, don't use a polarizer on a cloudy day but you probably already know that.
