I would speculate that you would probably have problems with camera shake, near or at the 135 mm end of that 18-135 mm. Most certainly with the 70-300 mm.

Of course you could solve this by getting a tripod, but there will be times when you can't / won't want to carry one.

So, I would say that, at least for the 70-300 mm, get the VR (vibration reduction) version: AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED.

I'm sure tombomba2 will be happy to give you a few reasons to get the 18-200 VR. It seems a bit expensive, but:

a) it is flexible enough to cover 18 to 200 mm,
b) it has VR, and
c) you probably won't need to use any other lens (thus not needing to change lens, thereby reducing or even negating the chance of dust getting in).

Keep in mind that the lenses will probably last longer than the body, so it's best to make a good investment in lenses (if you can afford it).

Well bthall17, sorry to say that, but if you need a 70-300 you should definitely buy the VR-version: The AF-S VR 70-300mm 4.5-5.6G IF-ED.
This is around 500EUR but you can do this later. Just start with the 18-135 or even better the 18-70mm (see Gordon's verdict here: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Nikko ... age6.shtml).

I think that sounds like a great idea. Maybe I will just start out with the 18-135 to get use to the camera with, and then maybe save up for the VR version for a later purchase. I'll start hiding 20 bucks every now and then from my wife, and sooner or later I will have enough to make the purchase. :twisted:

Plus there are other ways to ge trich soon:
- stop smoking
- drink less
- take the bike not the car
And the added benefit: that's also healthy :wink:
