Condition: Used: Good
Comment: Lens is very nice and works great. Comes with a Hoya UV filter. Filter was misthreaded by previous owner and so is not easily removed. I will include the filter stuck on the lens. Looks like there may be some dust in the lens. Will include front and end lens caps. [165]

By now there are enough pro reviews out there for experienced shooters to read the handwriting on the wall. No, this is not a 17-35 and 70-200 wrapped into a tiny package. You can't have that for any amount of money. The 18-200VR is NOT meant to challenge the exotics like my 70-200VR or the 200-400VR. It's not even meant to take on a prime. It's designed to be the ultimate one lens solution when you don't want a bag full of heavy glass along for the ride. It features moderately fast (but not very) optics, vibration reduction and a lot of work to keep CA and distortion down. This it achieves with some success, but distortion is still obvious at 18mm. Distortion is sever enough at the wide end to require correction in post (easy to do), but this is NOT lens for those who shoot architecture professionally. This type of distortion is TYPICAL for a lens of this type.

I'm sorry, but those who have panned this lens either got a bad one (quite possible with early batch issues reported) or just don't understand what a walk-around lens is for. This is what we all hoped the 24-120 VR would be, but unlike that lens it gets much more done for just 200 dollars more. Anyone who says there are lenses like this for less...well where? No other superzoom is this sharp, has so little CA and throws in VR II as well...and in a small package!

Now...how good is it in the real world? VERY GOOD. It's a match for the sharp little 28-200G which means it's only a bit less sharp than the 70-200VR which costs twice as much. My first images with this lens were stunning, detailed and fairly sharp to the edges above F5. Close focus gives near macro results and again this lens is SHARP! Focus speed is quite fast of course, but I feel that the 18-70 kit lens is a hair quicker.

I have had this lens for ~2 months and use it on my D80. I also have a few other lenses, two primes and one wide-angle zoom.

Before purchasing this lens I would encourage anyone to search online and read the technical reviews of it. I agree with their consensus which is:

- if you want a very flexible zoom that gives you VR and a wide range of focal lengths without too much weight or bulk, and if you don't want to be switching between lenses, then this is the lens for you. It's good enough to cover most shots in a range of common conditions. If you want the quality of SLR but only one lens then go for it.

- if you want great optical quality (ie low distortion etc), and/or wide enough aperture to give low light ability/fast shutter speed, then the design compromises in this lens make it a questionable choice for you.

In short, the designers have definitely preferenced this lens's amazing flexibility at the cost of other attributes found in higher quality (though less versatile in some respects) photographic glass.

This design balance may suit you brilliantly or it may not suit you at all. It all depends on what you are buying the lens for, and what sort of use you intend to have for your photographic equipment.

I'm happy with mine as a flexible "one-stop-shop" tool, especially when I'm travelling light and don't exactly know what I'm going to come across. It does give pretty reasonable images all told, and a fantastic "advanced point-and-shoot" capability.

But does it spend much time on my camera when I have all my other gear on hand and when I want to take a specific high-quality, technically thought out shot? No.

I waited 6 weeks for mine to arrive and used it almost immediately at an airshow featuring the Blue Angels. I took about 3 gigibytes of pictures at that show. I used the lens with a D50 in sports mode to capture the fast moving planes. It was a great day with not a cloud in the sky. When I later looked at the pictures I was dismayed to see significant light fall off or vignetting on the shots taken at 200mm with the lens wide open at f5.6.

This light fall off is the most significant problem I have noticed with this lens. I contacted Nikon and they said it was normal. Since the lens is made for the smaller DX sensor the diameter of the lens is smaller. This causes mechanical shadowing at long zoom lengths with the lens at the wide open settings of f5.6 until about f11. All lenses have light fall off, to some degree, at the edges. When you use a regular lens made for 35mm with the smaller digital DX sensors the fall off is outside the sensor and not seen. The light fall off was especially noticable with the blue/uniform background. If the background was "busy" the falloff would be less noticable.

Vignetting/light fall off is also usually seen on the wide side of zooms like this. I have not seen any with this lens. I do use a Hoya Pro 1/2 thickness filter so that a shadow is not made when shooting wide angles of 18mm - 28mm or so. I saw a technical review of this lens that noted it had significant outer distortion on pictures taken at 18mm but I have not seen that.
