#21. "RE: What to do? Bad lens? Bad D7000 body?" In response to In response to 0 Sun 03-Feb-13 10:05 AM by Ellis Feibush
I own a 50mm f1.4D and a 50mm f1.8G. Both are tack sharp lenses (for 75mm film focal length), especially for portraits with my D7000. It's the 18-200mm I had problems with and later sold (soft focus issues at infinity and at every focal length, especially at the wide end) and God awful lens creep! Maybe I got a bad copy but not sure. In my experience I have found it hard to buy a DX series walk around zoom lens that does it all, that takes tack sharp images at any focal length. I used it as a so called "travel lens" and it failed miserably. I know that in some circles it has become the "darling" of the so called walk around lenses, but not here with me - IMHO.
