Received a new AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR today. It's relatively compact and well-made. Not "pro", but better then "consumer" quality. If you needed one all-around lens to take with you, this might be it. Here's a few images.
These first four are jpegs created from the converted dng's in LR3. Nothing else done to them. What does everybody think? Cheers, Matt
