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

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    ideal when you don't know what kind of lenses your should take before to leave.
    loss of sharpness on the corner under f8 for my 18-200vr

    Your test reflect the default of my 18-200vr, tested also with dxo. So I return the lens to Nikon to confirm this point.

    Another 18-200vr tested had a better result, so I believe there is a specific problem on my 18-200vr, and may be on your sample to.

    Not so good as the 18-200vr was. But a very good swiss knife for allround pictures.

    Add 09/12/2010: I have change my first sample for a new one. And I can rate for a 9 for the len's image quality. And now this one is more performant than the 18-200vr.

    I purchase this lens in july 2011.
    It's an amazing zoom near equivalent to the Nikon 300mm 2.8 vr.
    It is a very performant lens and more versatile than a fix for a price very competitive.

    No regret at all.
