Default Which zoom lens to buy for Nikon D3100?

I have two lenses Nikkor 18-55 and 55-200 and don`t want to carry and change the lenses every time. So, I`m thinking about to buy a 18-200 or 18-250 or 18-270 zoom lens instead of two seperate lenses.

Nikkor 18-200 lens seems quite expensive. Do you recomment a Sigma or a Tamron lens? And which lens do you most recommend.

Thank you for your help.

I use a Tamron 18-250mm for a everyday lens and it works great.

No jack-of-all-trades-and-master-of-none lens will give you image quality that's as good as what you're getting with the lenses you've got.

But the Tamron 18-270 is probably as good a superzoom lens as there is.
