Which lens to replace my broken 18-70mm?
Jun 22, 2013

As I posted in 18-70mm won't focus. What is the likely repair cost? (Nikon Canada) thread 4 months ago, my 18-70mm won't focus anymore. I can use it as a stuck focus and watch focus it. But if you move the focus ring it doesn't focus of course and the focus distance window doesn't move. I have a D7000

So how what should I replace it with. Yes I am low income and my income is being cut by 50% December 1 to $95/month (no joke). But I did get $500 for my birthday from my surrogate grandmother as well as $100 from my moms new found cousin last week. I would normally put that that into savings for a new computer as I use Macs and have to think "worse case" for how long between replacements (5-years sadly).

But the bug is byting me to replace the lens that fell off a bus with me onto concret, worked for 9 years.

No I wouldn't use that particular $600 to buy Apple-care for my rMBP I got last September or for the $169 to replace my iPhone 4 32GB where people can't hear me sometimes.

So which lens would have the same build quality as the 18-70mm? I truly was looking forward to getting the 10-24mm this year but that's now out the window
