Re: Nikon 18-200 or Sigma 18-250

One point I forgot to make, however, is that for whatever reason, the 18-200 VR tends to expose about 1/3 of a stop brighter than the Sigma 18-250 Macro. On a D7000 this isn't a big deal - dial in a little more iso, or push the raw file a little more in PP, and you are done.

But on a D3000 you don't have as much to work with in that regard, and thus the 18-200 might be the better choice for you.  You'll need to weigh that against the added reach of the Sigma, which can be nice for those sport events.
