    i’m surprised your shooting with the 70-200…would you rather have something a little longer or do you not think the extra length would be that useful?

    great chat though!

    have you shot at all with the 18-200? One of my friends has a nikon and is asking me for a lens recommendation. I have seen some people on the web get some great results off that lens. I am always skeptical of the panacea lens, though, so I would appreciate your thoughts.

    I would love a 400 or 600mm lens. It would be extremely useful. But since that’s not financially possible I’ve had to adapt my shooting style a bit to make quality images with what I have.

    If I lived near grizzlies or something photography of subjects like that wouldn’t be a possibility. With subjects around here I can do well though.

    The 18-200 kind of worries me. With a range that large, I suspect clarity is lacking and chromatic aberration is high. Primes have the best glass, no question. Smaller range zooms tend to be next, and so on. So when the 18-200 is on the far end of the scale, versatility is exchanged for quality. My two cents.

    yeah and the only wildlife you find on long island is at the zoo. If there was more i would be at Cameta Camera buying the gear your talking about right now.
