Closest comparison to a Canon walkaround lens?
Mar 17, 2010

I was recently playing with a friend's Canon 5D, and found that he has a 24-105mm F4 lens with the Canon equivalent of VR (IS). It's an absolutely lovely lens and great as a day-to-day walkabout.

Is there anything from any manufacturer that comes close to this in a Nikon fit for a D200?

I'm looking for decent size and weight, fixed aperture throughout the focal range (f4 is fine - I'm not looking for a f/2.8 monster :D) and VR would be a major plus.

I can't see anything similar from Nikon or Sigma with this kind of range and was wondering if anyone here had any suggestions?

I know about the rumours of the 24-120 later this year, but I'm bored NOW
