Re: One lens vs. multiple lenses

Why on earth would one want to carry around several lenses when an 18-200 (or perhaps 18-135) would cover most of the types of photography they do and would eliminate the necessity of changing lenses all the time?

Well you asked, and the answer should be self evident. A general coverage lens such as you use gives general, average shots. My favourite lens is my 10-22mm you can't take nice wide panoramas, wide group shots and great interior shots where stuck fr sace like I can with your do all lens. I don't want to shoot tele shots of birds or sport, but if you did, your average lens won't get you the best shots. But if you think you are happy, then you are happy. So that's good. I am happy that you are happy with your set up.

PS ever tried macro shots with a dedicated macro lens? I have one. It's fun. You cant experience that unfortunately.
