Re: Nikon 18-200 or Sigma 18-250

1. If you are dead set on an all-in-one lens, buy the Nikon 18-200.  If it turns out that you don't like the pictures, at least you can say that you bought the best available.  If you buy the Sigma and don't like the pictures, you'll always wonder if you should have bought the Nikon. Sigma also is reputed to have more variable quality control.   There are surprisingly many published pictures in American photography magazines which were taken with the Nikon, despite even more expensive exotic Nikon glass.

2.   Keep the 18-55 for sure, since it really is very convenient, very light, and you won't get much for it as sale or trade-in.  I'd keep the 55-200; it's lighter than the 18-200 and very good value.  That too won't get much in trade.
