Advantages of 18-200 superzoom lenses
1

In the one lens vs. multiple lenses thread (see http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3524591), there seemed to be a lot of confusion as to why I would use an 18-200 lens over several smaller zoom lenses and/or prime lenses. I find there to be too many advantages of an 18-200, that I could never go a different route. Among them:

  • You never have to change lenses.
  • You seldom have to worry about dust on the sensor.
  • You don't have to carry around a lot of lenses.
  • You never miss a shot because you are changing lenses - or have the wrong lens on.
  • You never have to spend more money to buy another lens.
  • You spend less time changing lenses and more time shooting photos

Perhaps there are other advantages I've overlooked.
