Why you need an 18-200 VR Nikon zoom lens.

As Ken Rockwell likes to point out, over and over, wide angle lenses are not for "getting everything in". As you can see from the top image, 18mm (27mm equiv.) is boring. Everything is too small, the detail is overwhelming. That wide angle might be useful for a family portrait or certain landscape work, but for everything else, not so much. 200mm (300mm equiv.), on the other hand, puts you right in amongst the most interesting stuff.

Just ask yourself: Which one of those two images would I like to put on my wall?
