28-300 quality (vs 18-200)
Aug 24, 2010

"Nikon's salvo of lens releases is rounded off by the AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. Designed to provide FX format users with an equivalent of the company's popular 18-200mm for DX, this superzoom includes two-mode image stabilisation to the latest VR II specification, a close focus distance of 50cm and a zoom lock switch. It will be available from 2nd September for £869.99 / €899."

Obviously we need to wait until full reviews for this, but is the 28-300 likely to be any better than the 18-200 in terms of mid-range resolving quality and sharpness? I'm thinking that with the larger sensor of the D700, the full frame 28-300 is likely to have less issues with sharpness than the 18-200 has with the D90. Opinions? Agree/disagree?

I do love the versitiblity of the 18-200 but I very rarely use it these days with my D90 because of the sharpness mid-range.
