Zygh-

The shot was done at 1/80th at f 4.5 using -0.7 exposure compensation on my D-50.

The Tamron 18-200mm XD Di Seems to have less lens flare and it is a bit sharper than the 28-300mm XR Di.

Mare-

Thanks for the good cheer. I too, looked at the Nikkor 18-200mm VR II with a lot of lens lust. Then I decided to bite the bullet and to go for the Tamron 18-200 XR Di after seeing how it performed on my brother's D-70.

Please don't feel badly.

Guys, what about real focal Length?

Is the Tamron 18-200 made for 35mm cameras or just for digital series? And for D50 it becomes 27-300 or doesn't?

And look what I don't understand.

Tamron AF18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II LD Aspherical Camera Lens

http://www.bizrate.com/marketplace/s...305421377.html

and

Tamron XR Di-II 18-200 mm Macro Lens

http://www.bizrate.com/marketplace/s...353498555.html

It looks like different modifications. But maybe it is a glitch?

Please, help me deal with this, because I'm really stuck in it.
Thanks.

I'm pretty sure this two are the same.

According to Tamron's Website, the Di-II is Digital only. And yes, you have to multiply it by 1.5 to get it's 35mm equivalence.

After doing some research I've noticed that I can go 1 of 3 ways for about the same price (~950.00).

1) I could buy the Camera body + a seperate Tamron 18-200mm lens

or

2) I could get a Camera body + Nikon 18-70mm & Nikon 55-200mm

or

3) I could buy the Camera body + a seperate Sigma 18-200mm lens

Since they cost about the same which combination would give me the best pictures. Or is there another combination for about the same price that would be even better?
