18-200mm really moves off shelves

Re: Perfect travel lens, images for proof.

I think the lens is too expensive. I got an 18-135mm instead. Only the half price, lighter, no zoom creeping and the difference between 200mm(135mm on a crop camera) and 300mm(200mm on a crop camera) isn´t so big. I don´t see a reason to pay the double price for 100mm more and VR. For the single price of an 18-200mm I can get a Pentax K100D with an Sigma or Tamron 18-200mm. The same range with VR.

If I want a really big zoom range, I take my 70-300mm VR.
