I have the new Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS and love it. I have had the Tamron 18-270mm PZD VC and Canon 18-200mm IS. The new Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS is sharp throughout the entire range. Sharpness falls a teeny bit at the 250 end, but more sharp than the competitors. Unlike the Tamron 18-270mm, the Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS does not have lens any creep. The Canon 18-200mm was bulky and heavy. I never liked it. The Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS is now my all purpose walkaround lens. It's not a true macro lens, but it can focus fairly close. For anyone out there who are looking for a all in one superzoom, the Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS gets my pick.

This is the only review I can find
