I heard the Tamron 18-250 was so so at best, and nothing near as
sharp as the Nikon 18-200. Also no image stabilizer.

Where does the Nikon 18-200 VR get the reputation for being sharp? Per photozone, it isn't as sharp as their kit 18-55 at any of the same focal lengths. Plus greater vignetting and barrel distortion.
