Can anyone provide testimonials on the performance of the Sigma 18mm-200mm zoom on their *istDL/DS cameras? I am looking for a single lens that will give me broad coverage. I understand that Tamron has a lens with the same zoom capability. Any feedback on the Tamron would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

Check out this thread which I started when I was initially interested:


& parallel thread here:


Whilst the Sigma offered better optics thanthe Tamron, it would not focus correctly beyond 135mm (a feature apparently which has been commended on in reviews) I concluded that I was not prepared to sacrifice on quality just foe convenience - ultimately, I opted to compliment my Pentax 18-55mm kit lens with a Pentax 50-200mm lens; results from the Pentax 50-200mm lens are just superb.
