I have a Nikon D5100 with the standard 18-55mm kit lens. I want to buy a new telephoto lens but I'm a little confused between the 55-200mm VR and 55-300mm VR.
The price difference is not the major issue for decision.
The points of concern are:
(1) which lens gives better picture quality?
(2) which is faster in focusing?
(3) is the extra 100mm of the latter useful with handheld shooting?
