He means that the 18-105mm is a large and heavy lens and may be a bit unsettling with the D60's small body. Shouldn't be too big of a deal though, I used large lenses when I had an XTi. And yes, the AF/AE lock is a very useful feature.

No

No lens is "too good". Though the D60 is certainly the limiting factor...

I meant as Gone said, the 18-105mm is a lot heavier, longer and wider than the 18-55mm. I may feel slightly unbalanced on a D60 sized body. It will have excellent results though.

According to Tom Hogan's review, one of the positives is that it balances nicely on DX bodies. I borrowed one for a couple of days and found it a little "soft" for my liking. My 18-200 seems sharper with more range, but unfortunately more $$.

Contrary to my experience, Hogan describes the lens as sharp on DX bodies, maybe I had a bad sample.

DX is anything from a D40 to a D2Hs to a D300. The D40/D40x/D60 are small cameras. I think they weigh like 450g. In that review he's got it on a D90 which is about 30% larger (by guess) than a D60. It's also the kit lens for the D90, so it should fit it fairly well

Oh woops .

I'm thinking the 16-85, 18-200 or the 18-105. I don't think I need it all the way to 200mm but why is it only $50 more than 16-85, this website I read said that the lense on the 16-85 has less distortion but for $50 more you get a greater focal range in one lense. But then again I don't think I need 200mm. What would you guys suggest? I was thinking about renting them and having a go. But I am waiting for a reply to see whether or not I am eligible for the 50% student discount lol

I think you should look into the 18-105mm because it's like $250 used.

Need some ideas of what I should go shoot when I start using the Leica M6 this weekend...

Maybe I should go into SF and take pics...

I second this motion. The 18-105mm came with my D90 and it seems pretty decent to me. As Mootsfox mentioned earlier it also has VR, which is handy.

Meant to post this the other day. Went to prom on the weekend, and the photographer they hired (a school alum, at every event) was shooting on an A900 it looked like. It's weird, because all the portrait takers were using either Canon 1D or 5D models, but he was walking around with the A900 and a big honking lens. When I went for my senior portrait he used Canon...

I just got home from my Mexican Riviera Cruise. and I took WAY to many photo's. Not really to many, but we took alot.

I have some good photo's. (Or what I think are good) coming soon. I'll post them as soon as I sort through them, and edit a few.

Every photographer on the boat had a Nikon D300, with Ext Battery Grips, and those off Camera Flashes that attach to the camera body, they were amazing and I wanted one! The sad thing. Is some of the photo's were Terrible, and most of them shot in Auto Mode. Some didn't though. The cruise had a wall of photo's. and I wasn't very impressed.

Also, I have the Nikon D40, and I got the 18-105mm VR. No it's not to overpowering with it's weight. Yes it's heavy. and takes a little getting used to over the light kit lens. but it's a great all purpose lens. and It's been mostly what I've used since I got it. I also have a 55-200mm VR that I use when it's needed.

If you need a new lens. the 18-105 VR is a decent choice. I got mine used. but it was basically new.
