Sorry, I don't have any new pics to post at the moment, but I thought I'd share a good price I found on the Nikon 18-200mm VR II f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX ED lens if anyone is interested. Currently you can get it for $709.99 at 42nd Street Photo out of New York City. It is the US version so it comes with the full warranty. It's like $50 cheaper than on B&H Photo or Adorama.
I've been waiting a while to find a good price for this lens because I thought the original $850 price when it came out was a bit much. I even thought about getting a refurb or demo out of Adorama or B&H for around $600 but I just couldn't do it. Those either come with only a 90 day warranty or no warranty at all.
Needless to say, I'm pretty happy and I can't wait for it to get here in about 10 days or so! If you are in the market for one of these, check it out!
