Looking at getting the 18-200 VR lens for my D50, but having a 2nd thought after looking at the cost.

Who else is making lens that have VR/IS or some kind image stablizing function, and have less of a price sticker shock?

thx.

I am only aware of one other stabilized lens for Nikon and its the Sigma 80 to 400 OS lens.....There may be others as I am kind of new to this.

The street price on the Sigma 80-400mm OS lens for the Nikon is around $(US)1,000.

is there any chance that the prices on VR/OS lenses may drop?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"i was sort of looking for a VR/OS lens myself but, unfortunately, they are way over my student budget.

Unfortunately the VR/OS lenses are not currently showing a tendancy to decline pricewise.
