sometimes needs outweigh quality..... 18-200
Aug 20, 2008

One of my hobbies is making web pages for family and friends. When the 18-200 came out I was one of the first to get one and hung it on a D-80.

Yesterday, coming across my old camera bag, I decided to run an 18-200 side by side comparison with my old lenses: Tokina ATX PRO 28-70 1:2.6-2.8 and a Nikon ED AF NIKKOR 80-200 1.28 D. The pro glass had clearly better quality and I wished my 18-200 would be the same. After evaluating my need for wide and telephoto ranges, the weight factor, the "always ready" lens, coupled with the fact that my output is greatly reduced for web pages, I will stick with the 18-200. I'm hooked on this Nikon 18-200 for my shooting requirement, I couldn't have found a better match and am very happy with the combination.
