Hi Just to check which lens is better? Just got my D7000 kit, and not sure if I should upgrade to 18-200mm.

in comparison to IQ. Should I sell my kits lens for 18-200 lens OR keep my kits and buy a 55-200mm VR lens?

I am more concern to IQ and bokeh. Understand that I am not into the pro 17-55mm lens.

If u said u dun really like photography, u shouldn't spend too much effort comparing anymore. A better lens will not improve your photography. You should rethink over if photography is an impulse interest or not.

my interest of photography may not be any way in comparison to yours. But since I have bought my gadgets, is there any wrongdoings if I asked which lens is better? To you, you may take photos every day, but to me perhaps once a month. But I am still taking photos rite?

1) 18-55 and 55-200 VR
2) 18-200 VR

for both options u r considering, their IQ are about the same...not outstanding but acceptable for most people. 18-200 has more distortion than 18-55 and 55-200. however, 18-200 is a very convenience lens, so it's up to u whether u wan to spend 1k juz for this comvenience (and better build quality). bokeh are quite poor for both the options though.

18-105 has much better image quality based on MTF50 figures, and the 18-200 has terrible distortion.

18-105 is a much better lens, unless you need the unmatched versatality of an 18-200.
