Re: Help...I can't decide (16-85 vs 18-200)

I own a D90 and D700, as I recently sold my D300's.

So here's the deal:

The 18-200, providing you get a sharp copy, is VERY close to the 16-85's performance. In fact it's simply to close to give up what the 18-200 offers in the added reach. We ARE talking walkaround glass here, so there's no point in nit-picking how the 16-85 is slightly better. The 18-200 simply is more flexible and just does more as a walkaround.
BOTH are great lenses. Add the 70--300 AF-S VR and you'll be even happier.
