From my personal experience, when I don't know what touristy situation I'll be in, I'll use 18-200 which covers most of the brightly lit (like daytime outdoor) situations. Additionally, 18-200 has VR function to dampen hand shake effect. If I have better idea of the touristy situation like after being there several times, I may opt for 18-70 or 17-50 or 17-55 or other more suitable lenses.Is 18-200mm lens a must for holidays overseas?...18-70mm....adequate.....Do not...a white elephant.
Depends on ur shooting style and what u expect from ur holis~Is 18-200mm lens a must for holidays overseas? I used my kit lens 18-70mm, most of the time. I find it adequate. Need advice. Do not want to hug a white elephant.
That's oversimplifying and incorrect. Dust finds its way to the sensor even if you never change your lens. Not changing lenses (or simply always using the same) defeats the purpose of having a DSLR. Sensors can be cleaned.Thanks for all your valuable inputs. Lugging extra lens and changing lens invites dust into sensor. No thanks.
