Ok, I know any lens makes compromises but I need one lens I can use nearly all the time. Most of my shots are taken on rides on my bike, being a sport bike the less I can take the better. I currently have two nikon lenses, a 28-80mm and a 70-300mm that came kitted with my D50. I think I've narrowed down my next lens to one of the following 3. Sigma 18-200 f/3.5-6.3 Nikon 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 Nikon 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 VR II I absolutely want something that allows for wider shots then 28mm and offers a decent amount of zoom. I take many different types of shots while on rides, riding (panning) shots, landscape and candids of the group. Since I take panning shots, would VR II be beneficial? Any recommendations?
