    The nikon 55-200mm VR and 18-55mm would be a better optical solution.

    Never used it but I got fussy and decided I wanted better image quality than the Nikkor. I don't think the 3rd party lens with an even bigger zoom range could be that good.

    The Nikkor gets the best reviews of the superzoom lenses.

    18-270 is a long slow lens for no VR, you'd want magnificent technique to use it at the long end.

    Shouldn't the lens you use all the time (walkaround) have your best optical quality?

    What are your constraints? Do you care for great optics or are you just after a better lens for happy snaps?

    looking for better optics, but if the quality is the same, might as well have the additional zoom range. The 18-270 does have vibrationcompensation builtin.

    But the question is...are you willing to settle for that? Are you willing to sit back and not shoot higher?

    As verbosely put earlier in this thread I was initially happy with my 18-200. Perhaps you'll be happy with your superzoom lens for the same reasons.

    I eventually wanted (incrementally) better IQ, doesn't mean you will.
