Re: 18-200 or 70-300 VR with D7100?

I've had both lenses. While I like the 18-200 VR there's no debating that the 70-300 VR has better image quality. The 18-200 has other advantages, but when it comes to IQ the 70-300 VR is better. However, if you don't print larger than 8x10, or if you don't crop heavily, or if you only display your photos electronically, you won't see much difference. The difference shows up more the more you magnify the image.
