Walking lenses for D7k: 18-85 vs 18-105 vs 18-200
Dec 20, 2011

Greetings guys.

I am starting to play with photography and already took some classes.

I bought the d7k with the kit lens but now that I have an opportunity to buy a new lens, I was wandering if I should replace the 18-105 for the 18-85 or the 18-200.

Don't want specialized lenses for now as I take mostly trips where I can't afford having more than 1 piece of glass.

I have read many reviews which said that the 18-200 is not optically good. I don't mind losing range if I'm getting a better glass. I'm not sure if the 16-85 and the 18-200 have somethiing that is worth trading my 18-105 though.

So, I would prefer quality in the first place, but if the quality is not really being improved, or only by a little, range is the way to go.

Please, enlighten me.
