Default Canon 18-200 or Sigma 18-250

All limitations and caveats considered, I have decided to buy a superzoom lens that covers a wide range for travel and convenience. I have read several reviews online and the two lenses seem quite similar so I was wondering if anyone else had experience or an opinion of the two lenses. It will be mounted on a Canon t2i.

Wow, this has been on here a long time and no one has answered. I don't have experience with either of those lenses, but I do have experience with the Tamron 18-250, which is now become the 18-270. I thought that the Tamron took very nice pictures for an all in one with excellent reach. It was also very affordable.

Just a bump. Am curious about opinions on the three lenses mentioned.
Thanks, norma

18-270, the new one with the PZ is another option aw well.

But I personally like the 18-270 original, as I have not had the chance to shoot the PZ.

They are all good choices if convenience is your primary concern, but as far as image quality goes, none is as good as the kit lens plus a Tamron 70-300 Di LD.
