I have been wanting the 200mm, but just hadn't wanted to spend the money for it. Today I decided to stop at a camera store and talked with one of the guys. He told me this 3rd party lens is just as good, (I hope so). It's a Promaster. It has a lifetime warranty. Even if I drop it, just come in and they replace it.

I've already tried it out and like it so far. ;)

18-200 Digital XR EDO Aspherical Auto Focus Zoom Lens

2005 Winner - Lenses


PROMASTER's has always strived to have the ideal zoom lens for the avid photographer. As a result, we have introduced our high-power zoom lens in the new AF18-200mm Digital XR EDO lens for exclusive use with digital SLRs. The use of core technologies such as Aspherical elements, a Multiple Cam Mechanism and Integrated Focus Cam design has led to the creation of the world's lightest, most compact 11.1X zoom lens made for digital SLR cameras.
