I saw that it is available on amazon.com right now, so cheap too for what it is (sub $250). I was wondering if anyone knew anyone who had it, and if they could post some images, or links to images for my perusal. It's pretty new, and I didn't think it was out until May (or it still could be and amazon is lying to me ). Thanks! gB oh, the link to amazon is: http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-55-200m...6?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1177116627&sr=8-1 I know it's a mostly plastic "kit"-esque lens, but I am just curious.
