Total price with shipping: $2643.06 from Amazon.com

This is the exact camera and lens that I use probably 80-90% of the time. I think Amazon has bumped up the “kit” with a few things that they get practically for free to cover the real expense of finding and selling the lens, which has been going for about $200 over retail. As long as you can accept the fact that you probably can’t get it any other way, I say go for it.

Now… You can probably do without the multi-battery pack, the lens cleaning stuff, the field guide, the DVD and the gadget bag. If you could only FIND the D200 and 18-200 lens at “retail” price, you could save about $500. The fact of the matter is simply that you can’t find it, though. So I say buy what makes you happy. If you buy anything less, you will always look back and regret your decision. Who knows when the 18-200 will become widely available again?

Okay, it’s not the world’s PERFECT lens, but it is not too shabby. As I said, unless I am doing something really critical, it is my choice for a casual “walk-around” lens. Go here and read Rockwell’s review:

Go here and look at the sample images. Click on them to view them full screen. If you click at least once in the white space, your cursor will turn into a magnifier when you scroll it back over the image. Click again over the image and it will zoom to 100% size so you can really examine the image.

“Optically, this lens is the best superzoom we’ve seen, though it’s not compatible with Nikon teleconverters, extension rings, or coupled macro bellows. It also costs about $300 more than third-party digital-only glass. But are extremely rugged construction, unusually well-controlled distortion, and four extra handholdable speeds worth the extra bucks? That, and more.”
