Wide to Long Lens - Which to Purchase?
Oct 13, 2009

Nikon 18-200mm $720
Tamron 18-279mm $530 (after rebate)
Sigma 18-250mm $529

Money is important (the $200 difference can buy other needed items). However money is not the deal breaker. I've done a lot of research. I have read good and bad about all three lenses. A co-worker who spends a lot of money on glass says "Stick with Nikon as it holds it's value". However I do not intend to buy to sell.......

I like my Sigma 10-20mm a lot. But I am leaning towards the Tammy. The angel on my right shoulder says "You don't need any of them!" The devil on the left shoulder says "Come on.... You have not bought yourself anything in a while."

Comments/opinions anyone?

Nikon D60, D90, SB-400, SB-800, Nikkor: 60mm Macro, 70-300mm, 50mm 1.8, 18-55, 55-200, 35mm 1.8, Sigma 10-20mm, Lensbaby2
