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

    7 out of 10 points and recommended
    wide range of focal length, VR
    build quality, distortion

    For the price and versatility, this is an excellent lens. It is perfect for travel and general walk-around photography.

    It does leave some to be desired though. The build quality is not great. Beside from the zoom creep, my barrel has a disturbing amount of play when fully extended. No matter how solid your tripod is, I'm afraid this can introduce some shake in gusty winds.
