My walk around lens is the Nikon 50mm 1.8G... I walk forward or backwards depending which way i want to zoom
On the 18-x00mm super zoom subject...
I have sold all of my lenses down to three (that i tell people about): Tokina 12-24 f/4 Nikon 50mm f/1.8G Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR1
These are the only lenses i use... so everything else went to the classifieds.
except... a hidden Nikon 18-200mm VR2. My other lenses give me better images and i hardly ever use it, but i cant bring myself to sell it. Maybe because its worth 1/2 the price i paid for it .. Maybe because i'll need it on my next trip to ___ (fill in the blank with someplace exotic) .. Maybe its because i like the idea of not having to swap lenses. So it sits in my camera cabinet collecting dust.
The hardest part of owning a superzoom? Admitting you have one on forums
