    Anyone know of someone desperate for an 18-200 VR? I wouldnt consider it a good deal...In fact, I am only going to sell it if I make a significant profit, but who knows.

    It's in great shape and works perfectly.

    Have a Hoya multicoated CPL and a Promaster UV filter that I could sell seperatly for it.

    Yeah, no. Retail is bad enough, but paying over retail for used equipment? :hsugh:

    Okay. Good luck finding the 18-200 in stock, under or even at retail at any store right now. Report back.

    That sort of (sarcastic) argument only works on materialistic whores who need the newest/best thing NOW.

    I can wait. :wavey:

    I dont have to have the newest or best thign now. If I were to sell it, I'd get a tamron 28-75 and tokina 12-24. or a 28-75 and a flash. When the price and demand for the 18-200 drops again, Ill be the first to buy another.

    Most Nikkor lenses are Auto-Aperture lenses. That is they stop down just an instant before the photo is taken automatically.:squint:
