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

    7 out of 10 points and not recommended
    Nice range
    Not sharp at long end

    I have bought two of these lenses - the second one because I thought the first one may have been defective. I was wrong. The second one was just as bad.
    At the long end, this lens is NOT sharp, and why buy an 18-200 if the 200 is not useful?
    VR works just fine, but it did not help in low light situations.
    I waited months on two waiting lists for these lenses, and was sorely disappointed.
    Both lenses have been sold and I am now looking ahead for something new.
