Do people buy from magazine reviews, or do they use the reviews to justify the choice they've made anyway?
I wanted a 'walk-about' lens so I bought the 18-200mm G II because it's light, small, good zoom range and reasonably fast. For the price I didn't expect sparkling performance, and in truth that's not what you get. But considering the remarkable versatility it offers the results are pretty good. When I bought it I hadn't seen a review, but if I had it would have had to be a really bad one to make me change my mind.
I look at reviews in only one way, they tell me what's available on the market without me having to visit my local camera shop at monthly intervals, performance results vary from reviewer to reviewer to such an extent that it's not much use. The key thing is will it do what
want it to do?
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
