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

  • Summary: I shoot mainly landscapes in good light. So having read many reviews stating that f8 is the sweet spot for this lens, 90% of the time shoot in A priority at f8. And I get pretty good results. If you tinker with the charts here you will see why.
  • Pros: Convenient, good quality at f8.
  • Cons: Zoom Creep, Effectively a fixed f-number lens

  • Pros: quite a bit tighter barrel than my vr I and sharper.

  • Excerpt: I have 5 lenses: 2 Tamrons, a Sigma, and 2 Nikkors... All zooms. The only one with lens creep is my older Nikkor, and it is really annoying. From other reviews I have read, this lens is susceptible as well. So far, so good. Thus far, the images are sharp.
  • Pros: Sharp images
  • Cons: Lens creep Maybe
