nothing wrong with using an 18-200 superzoom; I'm sure every manufacturer's 18-200 sells extremely well because it's a swiss army knife of a lens.

my wife resolutely shoots with the 18-200 since she hates the additional weight and fuss that comes with switching lenses. and that's a valid point; she is able to move faster than me and often manages to grab shots I simply have to spectate because I don't have the right lens on at the right moment. L glass is certainly not a cure-all, and I know plenty of people who are actually glad not to be carrying around red-striped equipment due to the weight savings (and cost savings!).

oh yeah, her 18-200 comes image stabilized, which neither my 16-35 nor 24-70 are ... so we actually end up pretty even in terms of keeper rates despite her slower glass


18 - 200mm is EF-s only and quality isn't up there with the best by a long way.

However a lens I'd like to see is born from using a 24 - 105mm IS L on a crop frame. Sometimes you just don't need a wide angle, but do need the long end. The 70 - 200mm is just too long, so something perhaps 35 - 40mm at the wide end and maybe 150 - 175mm at the long end.

I doubt we'll ever see this so it'll have to be the crop body or even two bodies with different lenses.
