18-300mm VR got it !

Hello Forum !

I just got my new lens. It looks quite good, about the same weight as the 28-300mm.

It comes with a hood and with leather case and a thick manual, but its thick because it has many languages .

I will compare against the 28-300mm and against some other lenses as soon as I get back to my country. Heading back today.

The range is unbelievable, coupled with the small D5100 it may be a good one camera one lens vacation outfit. The Macro abilities are quite excellent. The Vr does not seem up to par to other vr's , but it could be my mind. I have only played with it less than 30 minutes.

Focusing is not fast and there is quite a bit of breething on the long focal length.

Flare seems very well controlled. I shot these without the hood. Will do more testing and let you know comments.
