Igbsaab, after getting my new camera with dual lens kit (18-55 & 50-200). I found the 50-200 attached to the camera more often then the 18-55. I think 20-500 is a better walk about lens especially outdoor. I only put on the 18-55 when I am shoot indoor in tight space where I need the wider angle view. However, occasionally, when the camera is searching for the proper focus, the 50-200 lens definitely has slower response than the 18-55. Hope this help.

BE,

Any possibility that you take pict of both lens at the same object at 50mm? My hunch is that 50-200 is a better and sharper lens as I ebayed off my 18-55. I am curious about 50-200 which has in general better reports.

Not a problem, outside is cloudy and windy today, so I took one outdoor and one indoor with flash. Judging quickly from the indoor one, I think you are right, the 50-200 seemed to be is sharper. All picture taken at same setting and untouched (image tone- normal, F8.0, iso 400, spot focused)

Note: the the outdoor pictures focused at center and the indoor pictures focused at the little plant and recomposed slighted.

So BE you are right in that without this test you actually have 50-200mm more often on your dslr except when you need a wider angle shot. Actually 50mm is a very convenient focal length for a lot of situation. Thanks for your info.

I have a chance to get a 50-200mm Pentax Lens at work for a decent price, but all of this Sigma and Tamron talk has got me thinking.* Should I look at the Sigmas and Tamrons, or is the Pentax much better?
