    Re: Lens advice

    I have owned both the 18-105 and the 18-140. The 18-140 was one of my favorite lenses when I shot the D7100. My wife wanted the all in one ease so I bought her the 18-200. it does not hold a candle to the 18-140. She now wants a 18-300 but I think she would not be happy with the quality of the photos it produces. We already share a 70-300 and it is a great lens on both her D7100 and my D750.

    Dump the two middle ones and get a 18-140 You will be covered from 18-300 between those 2 lenses. Then you just need a wide angle. Get the Tokina 11-16 and you will be covered.

    I suspect the 18-200 you bought your wife is the one made in China. If you can get the older 18-200 made in Japan, it is a great lens.

    I would heartily agree with Don's advice. The 18-140mm and the 70-300mm are both very flexible lenses that maintain very good image quality.

    Yes, the quality really did not look good at all once I put them on the D7100

    Re: Lens advice

    Ok looks like I am going to look into a used\refurbished 18-140. I put my self on the Notify at B&H for when it comes in. Any other good places to buy used/refurb?

    Buydig is another place I have bought from but they don't have the 18-140 refurbed.

    Re: Lens advice

    There are many places to look for used or refurbished lenses. You could always post a Want to Buy (WTB) thread in the marketplace and see if a member on here may have one they are looking to sell!

    You could also look at the following:

    Adorama:
    https://www.adorama.com/

    Nikon USA:
    http://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-store/refurbished-cameras.page?#!/tag:8ps:Lenses

    I know I have seen a lot of members on here say that they have purchased from KEH in the past as well.
    https://www.keh.com/

    If you have a local camera store (not big box, but an actual camera store) they often sell used lenses.

    There is one in my area that will ship to you (National Camera Exchange), but they do not have any 18-140's currently.
    https://www.natcam.com/

    I was able to find one at Allen's Camera in PA for you ($300):
    =Nikon-AF-S-DX-18-140mm-f%2F3.5-5.6G-ED-VR-%28USED%29---S%2FN-60157932-Used-Nikon-Lenses&catalog[product_guids][0]=1158603]Nikon AF-S DX 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (USED) - S/N 60157932 - Used Nikon Lenses - Allen's Camera & Video | Product Specifications

    Good luck in your search. Hopefully this helps!

    For used gear; KEH.

    For remanufactured gear, either Nikon direct or Adorama is where I would start.

    Re: Lens advice

    Well i think I want to at least unload my 55-200 first. I bought it as a refurbed so what might I get for it on the market?
