hi guys, i need opinion from board members here.
okay here is the issue. i dont have lot of money and i ve been saving up. here we go, now i am ready to spend some of my saving.
I WANT TO GET 1 LENS. and i dont know which one to choose. is it 18-200mm VR nikon or 105mm VR macro.
okay, here what i wanna know from this lens
1) for 18-200mm , i know this is supposed to be a very convenient lens but some people complain that this is not sharp. IS IT SHARP??? is it sharper than 18-55mm standard lens kit???
by the way, my camera is nikon d40.
2) kenrockwell stated that nikon 18-200mm can basically substitute 105mm VR macro since the macro function in nikon 18-200mm is excellent, IS THIS TRUE??
3) how is 105mm VR macro?? is it good?? is it worth the price???
WHAT I REALLY WANT IS MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY. i am just thinking if 18-200mm can replace 105mm VR , i might as well just get 18-200m since that lens is so convenient.
this is a somewhat overwhelming question. I need your opinion and please help me guys. thanks so much : ) i appreciate yall's answers
