latest on 18-250 mm zooms ?

My trusty 6 year old Tamron 18-250 mm has developed a gear problem on the focus ring. In the meanwhile the improvements on the design of its equivalent / similar lenses may have been brought us some essential progess in IQ - while I am quite satified with the preformance of my old one (I am not a pixel hunter) ?

Have not followed the forum's respective discussions for a while. So my questions are:

- What is presently the best (IQ, focussing speed) lens in that department ? Sigma seems to have received good reviews. What about the Sony originaln ?

- the repair of the lens is around $200.- Is it worth while to pay for the latest edition of the lens concept, instead of repairing ?

Thanks in advance for any input / feed back.
