EDIT - It's gone up to £157 now - but there's a link to buy from Wildings for £142.99 now on the right hand side where there are "more buying choices".- EDIT

It's finally dropped below £150 again (just)!
Suitable for all Nikon DX bodies.
Yes, it will work with AF on your D40/D40x/D60/D3000/D5000/D3100/D5100.
It's a very good lens, especially at the price, and the vibration reduction works well.

18-200 is a huge range and quite a big lens. It's hard to get good quality without too much barrel distortion at the wide end on such a big range, so the price is going to be high.

I've got an 18-105 and a 55-200. That's quite a bit of overlap but in practise the 18-105 is fine for most day-to-day photography and the 55-200 or 55-300 are good lenses when you need something a bit longer. The 55-200 is very small and light for a tele zoom.

It's the first time I've seen it under £150 for a while. Nikon lens prices seem to have crept up a bit lately. I don't see why prices should be going up though as the pound seems to be pretty stable against the yen and the US dollar and inflation isn't very high.

Hi I already have the 18-55 VR and 55-300 VR but was looking for all in one travel lens. Cost makes it non viable.

You could try a Sigma alternative?

Or just hire the Nikon 18-200 for your holiday?

Hi guys I know this is off topic but I'm a little new too the DSLR scene which lens would you recommend out of these two

Thanks


A strange question to ask in a thread about a Nikon lens as there won't be many Canon users here - but I'd probably go for the Tamron at that price - and the "macro" facility is a nice touch. (It's not true macro IMO as it isn't 1:1, but it's still a reasonable closeup facility).

One thing to bear in mind is that neither of those 2 lenses has image stabilisation (and you won't get it at that price). If you don't need it straight away you might be better off saving for the £300 Sigma 70-300 OS lens which does have image stabilisation. That can make a LOT of difference at 300mm.

EDIT - I just noticed that the Canon goes up to 300mm and the Tamron only goes to 200mm - so the Canon will give you a lot more telephoto but the Tamron will probably be smaller and lighter. If you want longer distances though the Canon would be the better bet out of those two if you can afford the extra.

EDIT 2 - Pricing seems a bit strange - first time I looked at the Canon lens it told me £149 but now it is showing £127! At £127 the Canon is definitely the better choice!
