    I gotta Nikon 18-70 for sale, anybody need one? I got it with my D200 :)bowdown: camera!!!) and it's never been mounted. Still in plastic and all.

    Great lens, and I still have my 18-70 from my D70. Great upgrade for the D50s 18-55 lens.

    Asking $200 OBO.

    So i've got the 18-55... I've read bythom's review of it but I'm wondering if someone won't mind telling me exactly what differences am I going to notice besides the extra zoom? Faster focus, sharper pictures?

    Also, what if I was thinking about buying a 55mm and a 18-200mm w/ VR, would this still be a good thing to have around?

    If you are getting a 18-200mm VR, you can do without the 18-70mm. From what I've seen the quality at 18-70mm range is similiar.

    Are they really? SHIEAT! I should've done my research :wtc:

    Edit: I'll post pics tonight. It's posted locally, and it's going on Ebay as well...I need to sell this and a 70-210mm F4-5.6 lens. Gotta get these sold to pay for the damn D200.

    It's a good lens, no doubt. I sold mine, too.

    the 18-70 can focus faster and the pictures tend to be much sharper and represent better color. The build quality is very good too. Proper lens hood, less lens flare, etc.

    if you're getting the 18-200, you'll be just fine.
