Re: I didn't like the super zoom

Well if you don't mind a two lens solution like the Tammy 17-50 plus a telephoto 55-300 or whatever it's always ideal for IQ vs the superzoom.  You sounded like you wanted a jack-of-all-trades lens, now you're veering back to two lenses...LOL, reminds me of me actually.

I didn't want to go superzoom at first because of the IQ compromises.  Ultimately I ended up getting one for practical purposes (1 lens to carry, not able to easily make lens changes), had two newborns in the span of 15 months so I was trying to simplify a bit.  I held out for a long time before getting one, and bought what I felt was the best one available at the time (Sigma 18-250 DC OS HSM).  I don't regret the buy, it's a very nice lens for what it does (firmware hassles aside) and would have done the same thing again.
