I used one on my D90 and was pretty happy with it
but when I had a D90 I was shooting in bright daylight at f8
it will not be as sharp as your 1.8s
what do mean by close ups ?
If you intent to keep the 1.8s
I would also consider the 70 -300
or the 85 mm micro
From what I've read, the 18-200 doesn't fully resolve to the D7000's abilities, so it will be your limiter.
--Your prime lenses mostly out-resolve the D7000, so currently
I have the D7000 and the Nikkor 18-200mm lens you inquire about. It is a great combo and well worth your consideration. I do find a bit of softness in the images when you are shooting at the upper end of the zoom, but the images are very acceptable.
I enjoy this lens a great deal and would recommend it..... Enjoy
My generalization wasn't fully written-out perhaps - I thought it was common-enough to be accepted fact: lens weaknesses appear most in the corners. Primes suffer it to a lesser degree. Big zooms suffer it to a greater degree: a blurriness that sacrifices detail. Shoot the 18-200 wide open at the same 35-50mm and we'd expect to leave behind a few MP of detail in more of the frame moving from the outside in, than shooting the primes and inspecting those same corners at the same aperture, no?I guess I'll turn it around and ask, does the 18-200 show more flaws in the D7000's resolving abilities, or does the D7000 show more flaws in the 18-200's resolving abilities? Do reviewers use the 18-200 to show the 24MP D3200's flaws?I read photozone, slrgear, dpreview, bythom - are there better? I've lurked here until they revamped the forums and thought it was a knowledgeable collection of photographers and surprisingly civil....
At certain occasions , I need a zoom, those times I feel handicapped. Also I am not too much inclined to change the lens (at least not in outdoor conditions). So have been wondering if a 18 -200 would be a good idea or not, especially on D7000. Or should I just continue using my primes and later on work on croping the picture.
"I would personally rate the D7000 and the 18-200VR it is out right now from my shop, many miles away as the primary shooting lens with the 12-24 Nikkor as the wider choice."Eh Davey, wassat?
"Reviewers who speak to resolution as if it is a measurement of a lens I find usually know better, but for some reason they use "resolution" as a catch-all term for quality, clarity and other descriptors. Resolution is only a sensor measurement."
