    Hi all,

    New here and just wanted some thoughts. I have a D70 and currently have two lenses, 18-55 and the 18-135. Am quite happy with using the 135 most of the time for general photography.

    I have an opportunity to pick up the 18-200VR at a great price. Assuming I sell the 135 (maybe 300) , I can pick up the 200 for about $200-$250 taxes in. (The difference would be covered via a work life balance benefit at work :biggrin:)

    What are your thoughts? Should I make the move to the VR?

    Do it.

    Not so much for the length, but the VR really helps in many situations.

    Thanks for the input folks. Just need to sell off the 135 before dropping some coin. Cheers
