My reasoning is that I've used both cameras and that if the landscape has challenging conditions it's normally coming from the sky, in which case you use ND grads to control it. That leaves the better resolution and fine detail of the D200 as the camera to pick.

suprised at the preference for the D200 for landscapes, (especially as many landscapes are shot in challenging lighting conditions) otherwise I think this is spot on

If you are thinking of going with a photographic holiday then these are the people to go with. I've been going twice a year for about 5 years now and love the area and John and Gail's hospitality and welcome. Don't hesitate, book it, I don't think you'll regret it.

When I compare the picture of the door taken with this lens, it is tack sharp. All of the other lenses seem to have a double image along the edge of the type. Is this lens that much better or did they not use a tripod with every lens?

Have had this lens for quite a while; upgraded from its predecessor because of the improved handling. Not much to choose optically. Well worth adding the extension tubes for serious magnification and works beautifully with the MR14X flash.

Well, I am about to purchase this lens, and I cant wait (and I am also obtaining it from Ian Kerr! and again its not my 1st purchase from him!). Although more by accident than design, as I was after a 17-85 which he had and noticed this one for sale too, so I bought both! Should be here next week hopefully Smile

I too have owned this lens for a couple of years and it has performed brilliantly. Sharpness is as good as my old Tamron SP90mm which was famed for it's sharp results. Another thing that it does is produce very nice Bokeh which is a good thing when shooting simple flower studys with shallow depth of field.
A fine and versatile lens that I wouldn't want to be without.

have had this lens for nearly 2 years now - cant fault it at all - perfect for macro and perfect for portraits.

Can be scary looking through the lens at BUGS !! so be warned. LOL
