Recently me and the wife went to the zoo and instead of just watching me take pictures, she decided to bring our D70. While I was taking pics with my D2x, I could hear her clicking away with the D70. She had a great time and came home with some pretty nice pictures. She did however, seem to like the reach I was able to get with my 80-200 and 300mm lenses. So I am thinking og getting her a nice zoo lens. hile she can simply use the 80-200 or the 300, they are just to heavy for her. I am trying to decide between the 18-200VRII or the 70-300 VR. Does anyone have both of these lenses? I am leaning towards the 70-300 because of the price (she won't use it all that much). But, I am also seriously considering the 18-200 since I could also use it as a walk around lens on the D2x. Any thoughts?
