I recently did something stupid causing my 55-200mm lens to hit the floor. Since the autofocus mechanism is in the lens, the lens only works in manual mode. My husband surprised me for my birthday by replacing the broken lens with  a 70-300mm VR lens. I still feel stupid but I am very happy!

    Yes, that would be a great unexpected surprise. I have that lens and it is very sharp. Good luck with your new toy.
