Re: Should I sell these lenses for a Tamron 18-270mm?

I'm the exception here because I like superzooms for general use. I have a Tamron 18-270 VC PZD and it is a little soft wide open at the long end, but you won't notice it much unless you print larger than 8x10 or do a lot of cropping. Recently I bought the new Sigma 18-200 II OS HSM because of a very good test in Popular Photography. I've been using it for three months and it is sharper at the long end than the Tamron. It's also sharper than the Nikon 18-200 VR that I have used, and it is comparable to my Nikon 70-300 VR.

This is the newest version of the Sigma 18-200 and is designated "II".
