18-200VR at 2nd day of Windfest (quite a few pics)

Went to the second day of windfest, but only used my 18-200VR.

I think it coped quite well overall. There were so many people there it was quite difficult getting a decent spot and once you found one you were loathe to move about in case you didn't find another.

I missed my Nikon 70-200 this year! It's sad to admit but I think I missed it mainly for it's appearance. It was probably paranoia but I'm sure other photographers were sneering at my 18-200 as they walked past with their pro glass. However after a while I didn't really care as it's much easier to throw about and easier on my back.

Usually I'd have my bag on my shoulder with my 70-200, 17-55, 10-20, 50mm and other bits. My back would be sweating, I'd have to keep stopping to give my shoulder a rest, so it was a nice change to walk around with just my camera and one lens.

Here's a selection of pics, all taken with D200 + 18-200
