    Gang,

    I'm trying to reconcile the differences in price between the Nikon 18-135 and 24-120 lenses and don't understand why the broader range (18-135) would be cheaper?

    Is this an "accuracy" thing?

    I'd appreciate any thoughts or comments.

    Thanks.

    The Aperture number affects the price on lens also. The smaller, pricier lens your looking at might have a smaller f stop number like 2.8 than that of the larger lens.

    The focal length or the focal length range are only one of the many factors. There are other criteria such as the build quality, optical quality, dimension/weight, additional feature such as IS/VR .... and many others ..

    It is the VR on that particular lens. I have the 18-135 and dont find it to produce inferior images. It likes f/8 and up really well.
