Nikon 18-300mm VR Super Zoom Lens

Photo purists will tell you that a prime lens trumps a zoom every time — and they're pretty much right. Problem is, carrying around a bag of lenses — never mind paying for them — isn't exactly convenient for the average shooter. Which is why they make the Nikon 18-300mm VR Super Zoom Lens ($1,000). Offering up an insane 16.7X zoom range, it can take your DX-format Nikon from wide-angle to super-telephoto in a flash, while VR II vibration reduction keeps those long shots sharp, and the f/3.5-5.6 aperture keeps things reasonable in low light. Looks like our 18-200s will be finding new homes.
