Hello Everybody, I have had Nikon D300 for 1 month now and this is my first DSLR. Along with it I want a travel lens. I will go to Australia on a honeymoon trip that will be 3 weeks long. I do not want 2 travel lenses covering different ranges as I do not want to constantly change lenses as this will be a honeymoon trip. It has to be one lens. Now, I am considering 2 options: 18-200 VR 16-85 VR I have read reviews that 16-85 is better optically, plus it is lighter. I know 18-200 is not sharp wide open on any focal length so I will have to constantly look after the aperture in order to get sharper images. Nikon D300 alone is enough of a challenge for me, so having to deal with aperture setting strictly for sharpness reasons worries me because it will make the whole shooting experience more complex and less enjoyable for me. So, my question is: is convenience of using the 16-85 due to its better sharpness and image quality PLUS the extra 2mm at wide end comparable with the additional 85-200 range of the 18-200 lens? I am asking this because I have never been on such a trip and I really cannot judge which lens is better and whether I am going to miss that much the 85-200 range! Please, also consider that right now I have Nikon 35mm f/2.0 which I will use for general photography, available light, family etc. So, once I buy on of the two lenses 16-85 or 18-200 these will be my lenses for a long time.
