Forgot to mention that I shoot a Nikon D60. I'm going to the mall today to visit Kits and Talls, and I'll see what they have to say about this.
I DO mind having to carry two separate lenses, but I also mind having to spend $600 on lenses that I already have, but combined into one. So I'm torn apart for that reason.
What do you guys think about stepping down to 3rd part lenses, like Tamron and Sigma 18-200mms?
They go for half the price.
