Comments:

I bought this lens 2 months ago as my 18-55mm stock lens failed after 4 yrs. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this lens, primarily for the versatility it gives - 18-200mm (although some question whether it really goes up to 200mm). It helps avoid changing lenses. The shortfall is that it "thinks" a bit while focusing, especially in the telephoto range. It is a bit heavy too, but I'm okay to live with that.

Used for only landscape and wildlife photography. Not a good indoor lens. Auto focus hunts in low light.great for what I purchased it for.

This can be used as a versatile lens covering most situations. The one lens I pick when I don't know what I will need. The only other lens needed is a low light 50mm lens for indoors and low light conditions.

Comments:

This is my primary lens now. 18-200mm covers more then the range for what I need. Shooting a waterfall on Rainier then 10 minutes later shooting the entire mountain without changing lenses is perfect. The odd lens opening (62mm), took a little time to find filters that would fit. Mission accomplished.
