    Hey All,

    picking up a new lens this weekend, and i'm jumping between the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR and the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-135mm f3.5-5.6....

    wondering what you guys suggest... the guy at the camera shop said that the 18-105 is an amazing lens.. and i had a quick gander at it... i'm looking most for something that will be a decent lens for weddings... so i dont need to switch between bodies TOO much...

    The 18-105 has VR and has slightly better optical quality throughout its whole range. I say it's an easy choice, once you read the reviews.

    Generally speaking I'd say a lens for weddings ought to have a maximum aperture of f/2.8 or faster.
