I would like to thank all that gave me their ideas and valued feedback. I have finally made up my mind on the lens and body issues I was having, I've moved to a Canon. I was offered an offer I could not refuse. (EOS 50D EF-S 17-85 IS USM) same price as the 50-200 SWD.
So thank you all, and I look forward to learning a new camera/lens setup and look forward to showing some shots I capture with it.
