  1. I'm a newbie and I love your videos. I don't understand what lens are suitable for what at this stage of my learning, so I wanted to ask you if I would need a 18mm-105mm when I have a 18-55mm and a 55-300mm. I ask this because the 18 and the 105mm's are covered by one or the other lenses. But like I said I really don't know a lot about them at this stage. Your advice is appreciated.

  2. My d7000 with 18-105 vr kit is just amazing… however, even this camera is enough for most of my needs, (not professional, just an average guy who loves dslrs) I just upgraded to D750 with 16-35 f4 vrII superwide. Im not selling my D7000 though as i love it a lot and it served me for so long and i had no prob at all, i just felt like its time to upgrade and the d750 is like, you know like not even comparable, probably the best on the market now, based on how it is and over all performance. but again, d7000 and this 18-105 vr is just fantastic. Btw, nice video…

  3. I have both the 18-55mm VR lens and the 18-105mm VR lens. Both really nice feeling lenses. My only gripe is the weight of the 18-105mm, I use it on my D3200 (which is a relatively light camera body) and when you compare it to the weight of the 18-55mm when attached, it's significantly heavier. You definitely feel it while out on a shoot. I don't see why you can't have both, to be honest.

  4. Awesome review.. I'm just starting in photography. I bought a Nikon D80 and it has an 18-105 VR lens and I learned a lot from you! I was kinda hesitant on purchasing it with thay kind of lens but when you spoke about all that I actually think I made a good decision. Thanks dude!
