Our next lens

Nikon 18-200 mm Lens VR Zoom Lens - Instapundit Glenn Reynolds Out of the Box Review - Popular Mechanics

How does it work? Very well. I focused on a bookshelf and photographed it from across my study in available light. The focal length was 200 mm (equivalent to a 300-mm lens on a traditional 35-mm film camera) and the shutter speed was about 1/6 second. With the VR mechanism turned on, the image was quite sharp. With VR turned off—notwithstanding my steady hands—it was rather blurry.
