18-135 vs 55-200
8 months ago

So I know that the the 18-135 isn't out yet, but with the lens rebates expiring friday, and not knowing the price of the 18-135 I am debating if I should pull the trigger on the 55-200.  I currently have the 35 and 27 but did not by the kit lens, and when I had my D5000 found I never used the 18-55, and normally favored the 35 1.8 or 55-200 when I needed the zoom but always thought that I wanted the 18-200.

So I am looking for some input from this who may have used the 18-135 focal length in the past.  Have you found it more useful in everyday usage then either a prime for say indoors, and walking around, and then a zoom when you need it?  Or have you found when you wanted a zoom the 135 seemed just a little short?

Also in terms of weather resistance, that's not a factor for me.
