what's the best place to pick one up? v.price
doesn't appear to be the best deals around
$650 new from beachcamera
There's plenty of price search engines around, just search.
how come z06 isn't sackriding this thread
I ordered my D70s+18-70 from there, I didn't have any problems with the place.
Please don't. Pleeeeaaaase. I bought that lens about a year ago, loved it for the first 3 or 4 months, then noticed the shitty IQ. Now it sits in my bag 80% of the time.
There are better lenses out there, and although they won't match the zoom, the quality will be a LOT better.
I think you just sucked at using it.
I use mine all the time and it works AWESOME for 90% of the photography I do.
It's great wide open, zoom is awesome, and it is pretty sharp.
18-200mm vr ftw!1
I also use mine most of the times (I also have a wide angle and the 50 1.8 of course)
I think it's the best all around lens a Nikon user can have. You can take awesome pictures with it, it's not 2.8 prime lenses, but damn better than anything that they sell in the kits!
Plus it's really the best all around lens with the range
Not picking at you, but................. you really don't know your lenses.
Quality variation between two 18-200VR can be pretty substantial. There was a thread where someone posted a sample from his 18-200 and it was horrible. I posted a picture from my 18-200 with similiar subject and same zoom range and aperature and mine blew his out of the water.
As happy as I am with my 18-200, I wish I had bought 80-200 instead of 18-200.
no one said this was a prime lens, but for an alla round wide to tele lens, it's VERY capable.
not the same budget as having two 2.8 lenses!!!
if it sucks so bad, sell it to me
make me an offer or a trade
You tell me about my lens quality then:
18mm / F3.5 / 200iso
18mm / F11 / 200iso
200mm / F5.6 / 200iso
200mm / F11 / 200iso
And the lens that killed it for me: 50mm f1.8
is that a straight table top? or a rounded one?
that's the distortion you see
here's the same picture with PTlens correction:
i want him to say round
want who to say round?
oh shit, am an idiot.
Sweet direct flash and non-controlled test
