    I really liked the 45-200 before I ever went to a balloon festival, but after today, I deeply love it! This is my favorite image from the shoot:

    I would love to know why the histogram kept disappearing as I was shooting and I had to keep pressing the display button to get it back.

    very nice photos....I also own this lens, and really like it! Some people claim it is soft, but I've never thought that at the right hands it is a great lens!!

    I am quite happy with it....

    ...and that's why I am not hesitating to sell my mega-pound Canon 100-400 lens. For burst mode photography my Canon 7D is way superior, but it sure was a delight to have fun at the festival without 10 pounds of camera dragging down my shoulder.
    thank you for the kind words.
