    It cuts down the megapixels by half doesn't it. D800 is acceptable since it has 36megapixels

    Actually, it cuts down to 40% left. But 15.2mp is just as great on D800

    I think he meant the camera mode bro, not the lens.

    I don't have any facts and figures to support my claims, but the max aperture of F/5.6 and the track records of the super zoom of Nikon, you can rest assure it will perform better than the 18-250mm from sigma. And, I think it's already available.

    Do note though that the 18-300mm weighs 850g. :-)

    OMG, the price here in Singapore is so ridiculous. The 18-300mm is only USD999.95 which worked out to be S$1,280 max. Nikon Singapore is really treating us like suckers these days!

    the prices stated are RRP and not the actual selling price at the shops, i believe that it is to tell you that you should not be paying higher than that
