    Default Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR on the way

    The new "must have" DX walkabout lens? Heavy though...

    Actually, me too

    But this new lens is considerably bulkier and heavier - assuming the rumours are correct.

    True. More flexible having 2 lenses than one superzoom. I can choose to carry just 1 lens and it's a lot lighter this way.

    Well bros, I'd say there're pros & cons...!!

    1) Yes, agreed that 2 separate lenses - pros is one can choose to carry just 1 lens and it's a lot lighter this way when using/holding-on...AND the cons =there're times where changing a lens doesn't deem fit - too windy+dusty_surrounding, some sport events, wedding-day=might miss certain great-photo-opportunity and don't say NO too soon...yah...haha...!!!!!

    2) Yes, if the "Rumuors" is "Accurate", then, rather 'got' weight and using 77mm-filter if I didn't misread the article...!!!!!

    3) Me, hmmm...will only buy if, it can out-perform the AF-18-270-PZD and at a very Reasonable$$$Price..., or else...haha...not gonna even be on my item-list...ya...!!!!!!

    Cheers to all...!!!!!

    Impressive, but I believe it won't be cheap especially new. I'll still maintain with my 18-270pzd
