I’m waiting on RitzCamera to get a Nikkor 18-200 VR lens in stock and fulfill my order. No rush but, really, please hurry, guys.
I want to have a UV filter ready when it arrives. But I want a 77mm UV filter as that is the professional standard, according to KenRockwell.com and at least one other source.
That means I need a 72mm-to-77mm step-up ring. Okay. $20 from Adorama.
Hoya HMC multicoated UV filter (recommended by Ken) on Adorama: $40 and change.
77mm Nikon lens cap: Almost $20.
Hey, while I’m ordering, why not order a Nikon ML-L3 infra-red remote for my D40. About $20 more.
Total bill: $101.90. Whew.
