    barrel distortion

    My 18-200 VR arrived last night, and as promised, I took some test shots to check for distortion. These first two were both taken at 18mm, the first at f/5.6 and the second at f/3.5. I'm no expert...

    No problem. If it weren't for your advice, I'd still know next to nothing about everything DSLR. :)

    Whoops. That's definitely not low focal range, that's the 18-200's shortcoming, it's telephoto I meant.

    As for little old ken's review, it was google's first result and I read it only for a...

    AH ok, this picking and choosing was driving me crazy. I kept looking at the arguments for the 18-200. I completely ignored sr. rockwell (he called it a "miracle!", I think) and checked all over...

    Links galore

    Hmm. All the ones that were incredibly inexpensive had something in common- no warranty. No thank you, ebay. Still, savings are to be had, especially considering the fact that B&H is out of stock...

    Wow. Those galleries are amazing- particularly "From 35,000 Feet." I really know nothing about third party lensmakers like Sigma; if their $260 lens can produce results like that, it seems perfect...

    I was looking back at the lens George recommended, the 17-55 f/2.8 DX, comparing it to the 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 Nikon touts on their website and B&H is already backordered on. 18-200 seems to perfectly...

    Ahh thanks for the advice everyone, this is great stuff. Ken, I've been loyal to Nikon my whole life but canon does sound awfully inviting. I think my trip to the camera store will be a long one;...

    From what I've heard here and what I've seen of Nikon's lens catalog, it seems like a much better idea to forget the D200 and get the D50 or D70s and spend money on a few great lenses. I shoot...

    Has anyone tried Aperture yet?

    It's Apple's first foray into digital imaging, and it's clearly intended to be a complement to photoshop, not a replacement. There are some reviews out on the...

    Really? Don't the D50 and the D70s have the same 6.1 mexapixel sensor? .. is there something I'm forgetting?

    What does "less artifact prone" mean?

    D70s vs. D200
