Officially called the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Zoom Lens, this is my go to lens when I am just walking around with my camera. The great thing about this lens is the range, the 18mm is great for landscapes and the 200mm is great for zooming in on stuff that is far away. The best part is that I don't need to change the lens. Since I already owned the Nikon 18-55 kit lens, I could have bought a Nikon 55-200mm lens for a lot cheaper but I hate changing lenses when I am outside, and I know my self, sometimes if I need to change the lens to get the shot I want, I just wont take the picture. So, this is was worth the extra cost beacuse now I take more photos because I don't need to stop and change the lens. So, if I am out taking photos, this is the lens I will have on the camera, then I will carry the Nikon 50mm if I want a low fstop for a picture and the Tokia 12-24mm for wide angle landscape shots but most of the time I will just use this lens. Great buy and I am really happy with it.
