nikon 18-200 vrII vs Sigma 18-200 os hsm II
Mar 20, 2012

Good evening,

I'm going nuts trying to decide which travel lens should I buy for my nikon d3100.

What I've seen so far is that the nikon fans would say that nikon is way better but the different reviews are not so sure, some of them say that the IQ is more or less the same.

Price differences are huge. The nikkor sell for around 750€, while the new sigma 18-200 sells for 370€. Is the nikkor really worth the difference??

I've also found a used nikkor for 500€ in excellent condition and with a one year warranty period still left...
Any opinions welcome! Thanks!

Nikon D3100

I am canon user, can't say anything about nikon 18-200 mk2, but I bought after deep research sigma 18-200 mk2, and is briliant lens, I was comparing to tamron 18-270 pzd, and find sigma is much better choice, just have look in this forum few days back, and actually few people said same thing as me about sigma 18-200 mk2.

Took the above photos with the new Sigma lens at Ho Chi Minh City zoo. Really happy with the clarity and colour. Both taken through a glass window from about 20ft away at 200mm handheld. Curves and neat image in photoshop.
