Not a fan of 18-200VR, but may buy
Nov 29, 2008

I've never used a Nikon 18-200VR and have not been a big fan of all-in-one zooms so I have never considered buying this lens, but after years of carrying and swapping lenses around, the thought of carrying just one lens that will cover most situations is appealing.

I can buy a new USA warranty 18-200VR for around $500 so I think I may try it, even though I have a Tamron 17-50/2.8 and Nikon 55-200vr, and the following primes: 35, 85, 180mm I think it would be nice to have the convenience of an 18-200vr but not sure if I will be happy with it's quality, or would I then sell my other 2 zooms and just keep the 18-200?
Geez, good deals like this can drive you crazy.
I guess for that price I could always sell it and get my money back.

Question is, would I even be happy enough with the quality to use it?

Any thoughts?
