Lens Advice Please
I have been given a Nikon D200 as a gift (my dads as new and boxed shuter count 3,300), at present I am using a borrowed Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 (old style no VR) and a new nikon 85mm macro but unfortunately these will have to go back soon so I am after some lenses.
As far as i see it i have a few options lens wise, but not sure which to go for and have sent myself mad looking at reviews that continually make me doubt my decisions.
1 - Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 (non vr secondhand) £100 and a new Sigma 70-300mm DC (non VR) £95
2 - Nikon 18-55mm VR (kit lens new) £85 and a new Nikon 55-200mm VR (kit lens) £95
3 - Tamron 18-200mm (no VR new) £150
As you can see i am trying to end up with coverage from 18-200mm, but not sure what to do the Sigma and Tamron build quality seems better than the nikon but the nikon has VR. The tamron would be a good cover everything option but i am concerned IQ would suffer. Price wise i have £200 thats all.
Any advice would be appreciated.
