    I just came back from my great vacation and I tell you that the 17-50 was and is a great walk around, The 70-300 complimented the 17-50 wonderful.

    Father in Law had the 18-200 I just tried and than told him that it is not for me. But on his D5600 it was great. I just missed sometimes a 10-20 wide, but not that much.

    To suggest which is right for you is very difficult. I think you have to look up for the weight as well.

    Mike, my suggestion is to do a forum search on the Nikon 18-140mm lens. That one gets positive comments from members although it's not a lens I've ever tried myself. But if I was in the market for a DX lens, that's where I would start looking first.

    Last summer we bought a used Tamron 16-300mm for Robin to use and she has enjoyed it. However, right after getting it we noticed a hesitation when it was autofocusing and took it back. They didn't have another lens to trade it for, but Sigma had just put their 18-300mm DX lens on sale for the same price. It has been on backorder for the past six months, but they finally got one in for her. We will pick it up this week and I'll let you know how she likes it.

    My everyday camera and lens is a D7100 and a 18-140mm. This combo sits in my car "have camera will travel" it is the right fit for me. I took it on a trip to Arizona early this year and it did very well for me. A refurnished unit here would fit into your budget.

    Since you already have a 100-400mm I would also suggest an 18-140. Great lens. I made a lot of a good use with it when I was shooting my D7100.

    Well, I still use my 18-200 original version.
    At $100 used prices these days I'm keeping it on my car camera.
    Upgrading from my old but useable $20 70-210.

    Mike I was mistaken. Robin likes the handiness of the 16-300mm but is not thrilled with the image quality.
