Turns out the 50-150 is less useful as a walk-around lens than hoped, because 50mm on a DX body is just too long. So the Nikon kit lens is getting some use, and I can see why the 18-200mm jack-of-all-trades have their advocates. I’ve been using the 30mm prime so much even the 18mm end of the kit lens feels pretty wide. The key issue with the 50-150mm is that in the average walled enclosure / courtyard / pylon you just can’t get far enough away to capture everything, though of course for detail shots it excels.
