    I have FINALLY saved up enough to get a really nice Nikon lens. I was going to get the 70-200 2.8 VR. But no that was sold out... So I started looking at the new short lenses by Nikon. The 14-24 2.8 and the 24-70 2.8.

    BACK ORDERED EVERYWHERE!!!!

    AHHHHHH!!!!!:madmad:

    I'd be looking at the 18-200VR. A great lens for all occasions!

    I just ordered the 24-70mm on Saturday when I did another quick check on B&H. I was lucky a couple of weeks ago to find the 70-200mm was back in stock. You just have to keep checking and order quickly when the in stock shows up. I think both times it was in the wee hours of the morning.

    Be patient. You're talking about expensive glass, so you've clearly been waiting for a while already. Give it some time and wait till it's available and get the lens you really want. Otherwise you'll probably just regret it later.

    i know it is painful to wait for the new piece of equipment after you made the decision to buy it. i think most of us know that experience ;)

    No offence but this is like feeding a chocolate connoisseur a Mars bar. The comparison between the 18-200 VR and the 70-200VR or any of the wide angles is like chalk and cheese. And I'm talking the type of chalk that squeaks when you use it compared to a lovely smoked swiss blue seved with a lovely red.

    Just wait a little longer for the glass you really want. I'm actually waiting for the same lens to show up in stock places. Good luck to us.
