FS: Nikkor ED 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF DX - digital slr lens minty condition
Selling this because I picked up the 18-200 and need to recoup some of the cost. Lens is in minty shape with no scratches on the glass or anywhere on the lens body. All buttons work great, and the CPU connections are clean. This lens is basically new, and has not been out in any type of precipitation. Asking $200usd.
ahhhhhhh i can't decide.
i;m so broke right now
hey, i'm also thinking of getting the 18-200. could you give me a review of the lens and post some pics taken with it. thanks
Its a pretty dope lens man, and it better be for what they go for. I found one that a guy had barely used for a few bills less than they normally go for, and even buying that killed my bank account. I'm only an amateur photog, so my review wouldn't be as technical as you'd get on sites like kenrockwell or dphoto.
Everyone says that if you can afford it, buy it and replace every other lens in your bag between 18-200. Nikon makes sooo many lens between this range, and they say that the 18-200 shoots just as well as all these other lens. Basically its a convenience luxury if you feel like you can afford it. Since you likely already have an 18-55, 18-70, or 18-135 lens, you'd have to get something like the 55-200 to have a telephoto in your bag. The 18-200 lets you do it all without having to take your lens off. Also, some will say that VR makes a big difference, and some say it doesn't. Its really all a matter of personal preference, how shaky your hands are, etc.... I'll get some shots up as soon as I find my camera cable.
thanks a lot. i got my D50 ina kit with the 18-55 and a 55-200. i'm looking to sell the tele and get the 18-200. i'm tierd of either choosing a lense befor i go out or taking both and changing lens between shots (dust and dirt in the camera).
i heard that at the extrems (18 and 200) the lense deforms the pictures and that could be quite a bummer. looking forward to seeing you pics,
It might just a little bit, but unless you're a really serious photog, as in doing studio shoots and making a living off of it, I wouldn't be worried. The 18-200 gets top reviews across the board, even from professionals who shoot in dusty or wet places where they need a fast lens with a wide focal range. I've heard its one of the most popular Nikon lenses in Iraq...
