  • Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED VR DX AF-S Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Reasonably sharp, image stabilization great in low light, a great lens for all uses
    Could be sharper though software such as Raw Developer corrects the sharpness.

    I have had great luck using this lens in a wide variety of situations. Recently, I got very good results in a low light, no flash situation. The unsharpened file at http://www.ccsc.k12.in.us/~jay/low_light.jpg was taken at 1/8 sec, f5.6, 200 mm. I like to have a very sharp image, so I sharpen the nef images with Raw Developer before printing. This lens is a great choice to keep on your lens.
