    sigma and tamron 18-200

    Does anyone know where I may be able to get some more comparison shots of the two? Reviews? I saw a post from earlier and looked at pictures and Sigma seems a little better. Any opinions on the two? Also any opinions on Tamron 28-75? Which lens would be a better everyday lens? Thnks.

    My personal opinion is that the Sigma 18-200 would be a better everyday lens. The Tamron 28-75 f2.8 is a nice lens as well, but very range limited.

    I'm sure that you wiil get a lot of inputs on this saying go with multiple lenses, which will also work, but for a general purpose everyday shooter I would pick a lens with enough range so I can travel light and still get great pictures in daylight and low-light situations with a decent flash.

    P.S. While not a comparison, most of my gallery on smugmug was shot with the Sigma 18-125 (which is actually pretty similar to results I've seen with the 18-200).

    While it is range limited, it's a constant f2.8 throughout the range and is sharp corner to corner all the way from 28 to 75.

    It's well-paired with the 17-35 f3.5 and the 70-200 f4.
