Andy Westlake from Dpreview puts the spotlight on the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR DX Nikkor this week. However the super zoom lens failed to leave a mark on the reviewer who calls it 'jack of all trades, master of none'.
Westlake is quick to point out that the Nikon 18-200mm does make a decent travel lens and has a very effective vibration reduction system however the lens is not without faults. Images often were found to be soft especially at 135mm and the close-up performance too disappoints. Overall the lens is recommended only if money is a constraint or to those who understand its limitations.
