learn to use what you have and don't worry about the critics, they are born everyday.
all lenses have weak points, don't let bloggers stop you, go out and use your equipment to the best of your ability...

Thought I would share an image taken with a Nikon D200 and that sorry 18-200 VR lens.

Your pictures are beautiful. I assume you used a tripod. I bought the same lens with my new D7000, but haven't tried it out yet. Now I can't wait!

No tripod. It was handheld.
