Re: 18-200mm
In reply to whiggy, Nov 22, 2012

I must say I like my 18-200 VRII.  It seems to get knocked for image quality, but honestly, it seems good to me. I've taken what I believe are some very sharp images within it.  Granted, I'm no pro, and do not make money with my camera. I've been struggling with buying a mid range zoom that is "sharper", but I'm struggling to justify it.  For general photography of the family, it is 100% fine for me.  And for me, you can't beat the convenience of the focal range.  I think you'd be happy with the lens.

It's a little heavy, and that is one reason I've been looking for the mid range zoom that is lighter, but honestly, it's not that heavy, and I'm used to it.

Good luck with your decision!
