Okay, I finally have obtained enough money to buy myself an 18-250 lens. I have been beating myself to death over the decision of Sony, or Tamron, or the Sigma. I have heard so many opinions that it's frightening. The Tamron is cheaper, lighter, and takes "Above Average" pictures, but slower focus. The Sigma is "Heavy" and "Bulky", but is fast and takes good pictures. And the Sony is quicker focus, "Good Quality" build, but is more expensive.
Now my question to all of you is... Do any of you have an 18-250mm lens that you would want to sell? or do you have any information on a decent sale going on that would assist me in making the purchase less painful?
