Re: Nikon 18-200 or Sigma 18-250

Nope - sorry, the Sigma 18 - 250 I bought is going back this Friday.

I tried every camera setting that I can work with, even some I can't because what I normally take pictures of.  Not at all happy with the final image.

I should say I've been a Canon user since the DSLR came out, and yes, that's what I'm comparing my new 5200 image wise.  I bought the 28-300 Nikon lens to go with this body.  It's good to about 200mm then it start getting fuzzy, but even out at the full 300mm, it's still better (cleaner, sharper, nicer color images) than the Sigma.  I just wanted to try something that may be better in the Sigma.  The Sigma isn't.

I don't like having to shoot F8 or more to get a sharp image. Espicially as the sun starts setting.

I guess I'm a 1 lens person for my Nikon. Though I have thought seriously about the Nikon 18-200, I'm not yet convinced.
