There is a phrase quoted quite often that when something sounds too good to be true you shouldn’t be too surprised when it isn’t. Nikon’s new AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f3.5-5.6G ED VR promises much, but can it deliver?

Sigma announced its 18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM II lens at the beginning of October 2011.
