Just wondering if anyone has gotten their hands on the new 18-200mm and what they thought of it. I got one for Christmas and LOVE IT!! <!--color-->
theres a nice review at kenrockwell.com ...im sure Shutterbug and the other mags will have full reviews. I think that its at an attractive price point for a compact lens. I know i can't wait to actually find someone who has one and try it out because i would love to have a lens like that for general utility shooting.....especially when you just go out and dont feel like lugging a suitcase worth of lenses around
im jealous :-)
It is a great all around lens. It really completes my camera pack. I have a 70-200VR, and it is a brick to lug around, especially the backcountry of Denali. I really contemplated getting the 24-120 but as soon as I saw the 18-200 I had to have it. Of course I haven't gotten to play around with it to much as the rain just won't stop here in Vancouver, USA.
