I think I'm more excited about that lens. LOL. AF-S VR 18-200mm.

I'm expecting an announcement at Photokina.

Wow, that would be some lens. 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 AF-S VR. That would be a wonderful holiday walk around lens. Probabley wouldnt come off of my camera until I went into the studio. :D Hope it is priced nicely.

I wonder what they are gonna price it at. I bet it will be in the $600-$700 range. I wish they would come out with a 70-200 AF-S f/4, I would be really excited about that. Expetially if it were about $500. :D

Just got to thinking about something. Follow me on this if you will please.

That 18-200 3.5-5.6 AF-S with VR should would make a good Walk Around Holiday Lens(I am also coinging the phrase WAHL[pronounced wall]). I had looked at the Sigma and Tamron versions, and was disappointed by both. If Nikon can pull it off for less than $650 I will definatley be giving that lens a go. I think Nikon is actually competing with Sigma on some of the lower level lenses they are releasing, and that is why I think this 18-200 isnt vapor ware. One example is that Nikon came out with the 18-55 and the 55-200 in April of this year, Sigma came out with the 18-50 and 55-200 back in October of last year, about six months apart. Granted neither are anything I to write home about, and neither are Nikons versions, but I do see a trend here. Sigma released the 18-200 in Febuary of this year, and if Nikon releases theirs at Photokina it will be about 8 months after Sigma.

I think Nikon is waiting to announce this at Photokina which is in what, another week?

I hope they have some other lenses lined up along with that 18-200, like maybe a 70-210 AF-S f/4 for about $600. Just a hunch I have on that one. I also heard they are getting ready to replace the entire Super Tele Prime(300mm+) line with VR lenses. I personally dont care much for those because I cant afford them, well I could afford one but then I wouldnt be married anymore. Uhhh, that would be an expensive lens, cost me half of everything. LOL

Thoughts?

Hey thats right... Photokina is coming up. I can't afford most of the new technology either, but I do like to read and dream - so I am looking forwards to all that.

Isn't that also why we get B&H Catalogues? :D

Might be why we always called them "dream books" when I was a kid...:D

(cept it was the Sears catalog or the Edmund Scientific catalog back then)
