About me:

A totally amateur 'tog but a bit obsessed. I am something of a gadget geek and have a degree in physics (most of which I have forgotten). The gadget side, the art and a chance to learn lots of stuff all appeal to me.

Equipment: Nikon D700 (waiting for the right FX )
An 18-300 as of two days ago.
28-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8(both freakin' heavy but wonderfully sharp), Tamron 2x, Prooptic 8mm (more fun than I expected)
Tamron 10-24, old nikon 105 2.8 macro

I'll replace it all when they invent a "glass" that is 1/3 the weight (any rumours?).

HarrieD7000: Only one month ago I bought my 18 - 200 VRII. I'm very pleased with that one. But if they had introduced this one only one month earlier, I would have waited for this one. The 18 - 200 makes very good pictures.

google "nikon Rumors" and check there before you buy stuff. I put my name on a wait list for the 18-300 more than 2 months ago (The saleman said "Why not, we had people on the waitlist for the D800 2 years before it was announced.")

friedbrains: NR just posted some photos of the 18-300 and the 2nd photo is very interesting since it is showing the lens extended and upright, with no lens creep. boom!

I traded my 1st gen 18-200 in on the 18-300 2 days ago. The zoom feels a little stiffer to me (but I didn't have them side by side for that). It has a lock but there is no creep up or down with the lock off. (not as new anyway)

Now will there be something like a 28-400 FX to replace the 28-300?
