    The good part is that it can save you buying two or three other lenses over the range, the bad part is that it's not cheap to buy

    I have just ordered my 18-200mm Nikon yesterday for 400 off a reputable ebay seller (normally 525+) I think that is a snip considering it's capabilities. The reviews are outstanding, there is the odd mention of lens creep in isolated instances and some fall off at 200mm, but I have read you can get that on the f2.8 lens too

    For the f2.8 lens you would be looking at 1200 I can't warrant that extra money, nor want to lug the extra weight around it is 3x heavier than the 18-200.

    I can't wait for my lens to arrive and will update you all!

    I have one here although I don't use it any more because all my kit is now FX full frame (although I could still use it in DX mode)

    In all the time I used it I haven't got a bad thing to say about it.

    Is it as great as the legendary 70-200 2.8? no way but then no one walks around with that huge thing bolted to the camera. Too heavy for a start.

    It's a great lens for Disney it really is. I do take a 50mm 1.4 with me in my pocket for more artistic shots but the rest of the time, the 18-200 does it all!

    Enjoy your new lens :D

    Thanx Keith.
    My husband has the 70-300 f1.8 (only manual focus on my D60, but works auto on his Nikon F2) but its just too heavy for me especially having to focus it in and hold it upright at the same time! and its massive comes in its own hard case. I haven't seen the 18-200 in the flesh yet but it looks pretty compact in comparison.

    Oh that sounds good I was thinking about getting a photobucket or something page, but that would be better especially if it is by Apple, can't go wrong with Apple!

    Is it free?
