All Purpose Lens

Post by Mike VanValen » July 5th, 2010, 8:15 pm

for my Nikon D5000.

That's what I'm looking for. Not necessarily for herping.

Something for events, landscapes, maybe a decent portrait.

Any suggestions?

18-200mm Is a decent all around lens.

I will second that statement. It was the kit lens that came with my D300. The only complaint I have about the lens is the tightness of the barrel. It does extend when one leans over. The sharpness is good and it does give you plenty of options.
