Oops, my previous was posted before seeing your pics (cos I'm too dumb to notice that the thread had more than one page of posts ). Very nice.

yes i am from Trinidad and Tobago, and as my princess came home for summer we went to Tobago for the weekend, which is where i usually get my best sunset pics, and also it was my trial run for my new Nikon system.
the 18-200 is a fantastic lens, i have always wanted one and this one came with no regreats.
the picture with my daughter for some reason came out looking on the soft side when i uploaded it on to steves website, but actually the original on my home computer is tack sharp, i guess cutting down the size and quality caused that, but to honest i am very pleased with the results so far, i knew before it would compramise some quality, but to be honest , to the average eye, it would not be noticed.
at 100% crop it still looks good and at 200% crop it is acceptable,
i bought the 35/1.8 for when the light gets low, but the 18-200 has covered low light great so far, so i wander if i should have gotten the 10-24 instead.

the D90 has impressed me everytime i have used it so far
the only draw back , is that i got the 35/1.8 for use in low light situations and so far the D90 and the 18-200 has covered everything .
its water under the bridge now , but had i known i would have been this pleased, i would have gotten the 10-24 lens instead of the 35
hopefully , santa would remember me this year, as i was a good boy
