Re: I like the 18-55VR

So let me get this straight.

There are people on this forum who are going to buy (or at least say they will) a $3000 camera which will produce 36.3 mp photographs --- and they're trying to figure out how cheap they can go on the glass???

That is freakin' hilarious.

Oh, man. Don't forget to turn off the on-board flash in daylight, Pops!

It works great and it sure is a budget lens. Get the 55-200VR and you've covered a lot. Generally if you just get a prime, it will leave you wishing you'd bought a zoom. You won't always be in places where your legs can do the zooming.

Why spend so much on a body and stick a cheap lens on the front?

Because you haven't any money left after buying such an expensive body?

The D800 can be seen as a one-shot upgrade to every existing lens in your collection. One possible reason for buying it is that it will allow you to get by with cheaper lenses, and thus end up being good value.
