I've owned five 18-55 VR Nikon lenses (got them with cameras kits I bought).  I sold every one of them.  It's been over a year since I owned one and just couldn't pass up on a refurb price I came across at Cameta, so I bought another one.

Why?  Every year my needs change and my tests of whether a camera or lens works like I want changes.  This time, all I need is a backup to my 18-105 VR (my copy is very sharp and a keeper) that I can take on walk arounds but know I'm getting basically the same shots as my 18-105.  As it turns out, the 18-55 VR I got is just about as good, good enough that I will shoot with confidence with it.  Funny, though, its 18 is not as wide as my 18-105's 18.

What's this got to do with Thom going with an Olympus?  Not a dam thing!
