I'm talking about the lens you used to shoot the AMAZING Swan and Reflection photo.
Which flavour of the 18 - 200mm do you have?
I have a Nikon D3000 which I think is very similar to your D5000. Right now I'm just using the 18-55 mm lens that came with it, but I've been looking at zoom lenses. I know I can't afford the f2.8, (nor do I want to lug it around) so I'm really hoping to hear that the swan pic was taken with one of the other 18 - 200mm.
