I looked at a couple of your galleries. (Tangmo and Water Town). These are neat photos. But the quality doesn't look any better than what I'm getting with my D90 & 18-200.

All of these were taken with my D5000 & 18-200 lens

I've noticed that none of your photos have a shallow depth of field. This could have made a good number of them a LOT more appealing (the bull for example). I'm also amazed with how much noise you're getting in photos that are being shot at ISO 320. Lastly, a tilt/shift lens would have made the 3rd last and 4th last photos infinitely better.

I understand why you like your lens, and the reasons behind not wanting to change them all the time. What I don't understand is your inability to see why we do enjoy the need to change lenses.

After typing this I took a look at your other galleries as well. Everything I've previously said still applies. The images of your dog could have greatly benefited from a faster lens.

I'm not professional, nor have I been doing this long (it's been just over a year since I've taken photos with a camera vs a cell phone), but I do appreciate that all types of gear has its place.
