Zygh-

Purely as an experiment, when I was picking up a prescription this afternoon, I took this existing light photo of my friend Deanwith my Nikon D-50 equipped withmy Tamron 18-200mm XR Di II lens. The lighting was terrible because it was all overhead flourescent lighting. The exposuure was 1/200th at F 7.1 with the ISO set to 1600.

Thats an impressive low light shot MT.I have been following this thread and have found it very helpful.

Can anyone verify that the Tamron 18-200 has more reach than the Sigma 18-200

Thanks

TD

TD-

I don't own the Sigma 18-200mm lens. Zygh is waiting for delivery of his Sigma so perhaps he can offer some insight on the Sigma 18-200mm lens.

In using the Tamron 18-200mm XR Di II lens I feel that it gives me a full 200mm after comparing its performance to the Nikkor 55-200mm lens.

Thanks for the quickreply MT.I`m swaying towards the Tamron on the strength of your test shots.My used Tamron 28-200 feels like its going to fall apart sometime soon.I definately need a replacementand I have the money for the Tamron 18-200at the present UK price of £250.My 12-24 will have to wait.

Thanks again

Mare-

Yes, I am pleased with the Tamron 18-200mm lens on my D-50. It is a nice all in one lens solution. Here is another sample using the wide angle portion of the lens with a bit of exposure compensation.

Uuuh, nice one, mtclimber!

What shutter speed and aperture did you use to take this photo?

My Sigma 18-200 is on the way. I can't wait to start posting some shots with it!
