Nikkor 18-200mm VR initial take

I noticed some barrel distortion when I was framing on wide (18mm) shots. I think I may have to keep my 18-55mm lense just incase I want to mitaget that. Similarly, I noticed more distortion at ~55mm on the 18-200mm VR compared to the kit lense.

I need to use this lense more extensively before I can make a conclusive review. As of now, this is a beasty and heavy compact super zoom lense.

Nikkor 18-200mm VR lense just came in...

Time to test out this elegant piece of hardware when I get home :) yeppie.

Holy Ghost Subway Station Batman!

Yorkville Station aka Lower Bay?!? - Apparently one exists since 1966, but never used by commuters. I always knew there were "training" subway stations, but never thought a fully functional subway station existed between Bay and St George.

Interestingly, this station's used in a lot of movies, as it's an authentic set never used by the public. Way to go Hollywood North.

Vi sitter har i venten och spelar DotA

A Euro-Swed-wonder. Ahh fuel to add to the DotA addiction. *PWNAGE* Music video and all, this thing actually hit the charts according to Wikipedia.
