"RE: Is mid-range zoom a must-have?"
In 2008 a prototype Nikon design for a 28-200mm f/2.8 showed up on an Italian site, but for FX or 35mm there's yet to be a zoom lens which spanned both 20mm and 50mm, let alone 18-200mm.I suspect that like the 75-150mm f/2.0 zoom shown at the same site, a 28-200mm f/2.8 is technically feasible but not commercially feasible.One of the biggest mistakes a photographer can make is to look at the real world and cling to the vain hope that next time his film will somehow bear a closer resemblance to it. - Galen Rowell
