I have been contemplating for a while my next (and first) lens purchase. At first I was really excited about buying the AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED. It has gotten some good reviews as far as being a great all purpose lens. With the only drawbacks I have read about being the lens creep. I think it would keep someone from changing lenses very often, considering it covers a pretty large range. Does anyone have this lens and recommend buying it, considering the cost? The only downside is that I do like to shoot wide angle, and would love to have the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED, but i think that is out of my price range. I also read a little about the Tokina 12 - 24 mm f/4. It seems to compare favorably against the Nikon at half the price. If anyone has either of these lenses any comments would be great. So i guess the question is, go for the Tokina 12-24, and then save for later to expand on the kit lens...or go for the Nikon 18-200 and save for later to purchase a wide angle lens. Anyone have any good suggestions, maybe for other lenses even?
