    Ordered to replace the 70-300 VR I sold this morning and the 18-105 VR I hope to sell soon. This will be my all in one walk around lens for the times I don't want to mess with multiple lenses. The reviews are finally coming in and seem favorable from everyone except pixel peepers, and even at that most understand that a lens with this range is going to be good at all and excel at nothing.

    Will be posting photos when it arrives.

    I love that line "good at all and excel at nothing." :lol:

    I have an 18-200 for my everyday lens, I'm slowly building up the specialty stuff though.

    Thanks!

    I've had 2 of the Nikon 18-200's on a couple different occasions (sold them both) and it was one I was considering again however I like the lock switch and extra length on the Sigma. I'm a lens creep hater :lol:

    First sample pic, nothing special but I'm pleased with the results so far... will go out over lunch break and see what it can do.

    Full size link for pixel peepers, focus was on the 'n' in Agent and shot wide open in crappy office lighting:
