Price points are obviously different, so I wondered if one was a better buy over the other?



Thanks in advance.

rar,
everything i've read and gotten from others say 28-300 is just too big of a spread for good quality. i'm also sure someone will come by and contest that tho. tamron and sigma offer a two lens set of 28-70 & 70-300 for next to nothing. IMO you'd be better off with them while you decide what primes you want.. just my 2 cents..

Thanks, robar,



I got busy and forgot to check the board. I've been using a 28-200 with my film camera, but it's 8 or 9 years old and bulky. Makes my *istDS front-heavy. I have the kit lens (18-55) and a 75-300 FA. Maybe if I drop back and just replace the 28-200 with smaller lighter model?



Just thinking out loud...working on a Christmas list. Thanks for your 2cents

Hi rar,

on my 35mm I had a 28-200 too (Tokina, Imade it fit to the istDS) but it's really heavy. Now I got the Tamron 28-200:Better quality at half of the weight and size - and AF too. I like it!

Take a look here:

and here:

I've tried zooms in Tokina, Sigma, and Tamron, and have always liked the Tokinas best. As previous poster said, they are heavy, and they are indeed, but always robust and top quality.
