I finally found a job that I'll be making enough at to buy photography equipment with. I'm definitely getting an SB-400 Speedlight, since I don't need anything more complex than that, but I'm confused as to which lens I should get. I have an 18-55mm lens (I forget the exact specs, but it's the stock lens for the D40) and am planning to get a lens to compliment it. I played around with a "Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED", which I'm just going to call the 18-135mm. It feels REALLY solid and has great zoom. I don't think I really need to zoom any further than that lens allows. I really like the fact that it adds a lot of weight to the camera (an odd thing to say, I know ); It makes the whole setup feel more solid. I haven't been able to take any pictures with it, since I've only used it in a Best Buy. Now I've heard good things about the 18-200 VR, but I've also heard that it has really bad distortion and chromatic aberration at the wide and telephoto ends. I don't have any clue if it's a solid lens or not, and if it's comparable to the 18-135 in any way. Do you guys have any opinions? Keep in mind that I'll only be making about $125 a week that I can spend (I'm still a student, so it's hard to find anything that pays better), so I'd really just like to know what's better for my money. Is the 18-135mm a quality lens?
