I want to buy the canon EOS 350D. Because I know I will need a tele I am thinking about buying only the 350D-Body together with the Tamron 3,5-6,3/18-200mm Di-II AF-lense. The normal lense of the 350D has 18-55mm. Is it right, that the 18-200mm-lense has the same zoom-range (18-55) and additionally the tele (55-200), so I don't need the 18-55mm-lense, right?
What about the macro-capability? Is it the same?

And last question: What about the other properties of the tamron-lense (speed, ...)? Does anybody know it? There is also a 18-200mm-lense from Sigma. Is there a significant difference?

The Sigma 18-200 is definitely of higher optical quality. And, you're correct, if you get the 18-200, I see no need for the 18-55.
