    D850 Lens Question??

    Hi folks.....I'm a brandnew Nikonite. Looking forward to learning much here as I pursue one of my passions....digital photography. I've had a couple of pics published rather unintentionally, so I'm taking the plunge....leaving my ol D90 in the dust (because that's literally all it's worth), and buying a D850.

    My question is this...has anyone any experience with using the AF-S 18-200mm Gll ED, VR lense on the 850? If so, how did it work? I haven't seen that lense listed on any of the recommended lense lists. Next year I plan to buy the 105 F1.4 lense cuz I hear it's an amazingly sharp and versatile lense.

    Thanks in advance for any info that you can offer!

    You understand that that's a DX crop lens on a D850 which is a Full Frame camera, right?

    As Fred points out, the 18-200mm you're asking about is a DX lens. I'm pretty sure that's not what you're going to want to put on your D850. I mean, it WILL work, but it will put your D850 in DX Crop Mode, and that's just no fun.

    The closest thing to the 18-200mm in FX glass I can come up with, just off the top of my head, would be the Nikon Nikon 24-120mm f/4G ED VR.

    A great all-around FX lens, even recommended by Scott Kelby in Shutterbug, is the 28-300. I have the Nikon version, but my friend's Tamron version is smaller and supposedly sharper. And cheaper! But you lose a little light when shooting zoomed.

    I got my Nikon 28-300 off Craigslist for $500 and it's by far my most used lens, especially on trips when I'm out walking.

    Thanks! That focal range would be very versatile Id think.

    Spending that kind of money on a camera body and then putting rather inexpensive kit type lenses on won't take advantage of it's incredible abilities. A high megapixel camera really need good quality optics.
