Hi all, Just thought I'd put this out there quickly. Currently shooting with a Nikon D5000. Glass: Sigma 10-20mm, Nikkor 35mm f/1.8, Nikkor 70-300mm VR It's getting cumbersome in the field to keep changing to my wide angle to get in landscapes and then back to the 70-300 to get wildlife shots. I'm seriously considering getting the Nikkor 18-200mm VRII. There is one listed online in the local classifieds for $450 with polarizing filter (don't really use it), hood and pouch, etc. in excellent condition. I listed my 70-300mm to see what I could get for it and someone offered me $500. Do you think this is a good deal? Has anyone else tried the 18-200mm? How do you like it? I'm not super artsy but I just like photography as a side hobby, as a result my budget is a poor student budget not a professional. Input is appreciated...I need to get back to to the seller (and my potential buyer) soon. Cheers! This is the lens listed: Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED Not sure what IF stands for?! Anyone? I am pretty sure this lens will work with my D5000.
