Sigma/Tamron 18-200 mm zoom quality?


Recommended Posts

I know hyperzooms are not the best quality, but how bad are actually

these 2 lenses?


I currently cover that range (and more) with 17-40f/4L, 50f/1.8 and

70-300 IS DO. I'm looking at getting some all-around lens for

hiking, etc.


How bad is the Sigma 18-200 compared with the 70-300DO? How about

the Tamron?

The DO is good. It less sharper than the other 2, and the bokeh is not the greatest in the world. But it is small, lightweight, focuses fast enough, and gets more than decent quality images. (yes, the 70 is sharper, but it is also bulkier, heavier and shorter at the longer end)


I wouldn't trade the 70-300 DO for any other zoom in that range.
