In a fit of carelessness, augmented by the presence of a large, dumb dog, my Nikon 18-200 is currently out of commission. I'm dropping it off tomorrow to determine how much it will cost to fix it. I'm assuming it won't be cheap. Regardless of the price, however, I'm a juncture in my photography. After shooting on that lens for nearly 3 years, its well-documented issues are finally starting to bug the hell out of me and I was contemplating replacing it in the near-future. I shoot all over the place, so I'd like to replicate a lot of the focal length that I have right now. Here's what's been recommended to me thus far: Tamron 17-50mm Nikkor 16-85 mm Tamron 70-200mm Nikkor 70-300 mm Are there any other lenses I should be considering? Though I'd eventually love to get a super-wide lens (like the Tokina 11-16mm or Sigma 10-20) I don't have the budget for three lenses right now. I can afford to spend about $1300 - $1400 and, while I'd like to replicate the ranges that I had before, my interest in upgrading would be to improve image quality.
