Re: Want to shoot 18-50 and 135-200 in the same lens

I use the Nikon 18-200 VR and have taken to setting my D90 to A mode set to f8 with auto ISO keeping things properly exposed with a minimum shutter at a 100th and the maximum ISO at 3200. f8 is the typical "sweet spot" for most lenses. It is a trade-off between noise and lens sharpness. I find that for most conditions my shots don't creep into the high ISO range but if necessary it will. Here is where the VR comes in handy. With VR a 100th is not hard to hand hold a 200mm shot and still maintain sharpness while f8 utilizes the best qualities of the lens.
