I currently have a 18-70mm as well as a 55-200mm the 18-70 is alright and the 55-200 is subpar in my opinion Iam looking onto replacing both with Nikon's 18-200 VR. I know this huge range with not be as good as say a fixed 200mm but is the quality on this lens going to be much better than the nikons I already own. I like the idea of this lens though because I will not have to carry as many lenese ( I also have a 10-20mm) and I will not have to change lenses and miss shots. Anyone have the 18-200? if so whatdo you think. I read Ken Rockwell's review and he speaks of it like its the second coming of god but I wouldlike to hear fromanyone on this forum as well.
