You'll definately notice the extra 10mm of wide angle with an 18-200, and that's my preference. However, the 18-200s are more expensive than the 28-300s so that could play an important factor for you.

Not sure. Probably comparable in quality. Depends on your needs. I prefer having the longer tele-end. I can always go to my 18-70 kit lens if I need a wider angle. I keep my Tamron 28-300 on most of the times. Here are some recent shots which show the range of this lens.

Macro with Nikon 4T at 300mm and internal flash.

Handheld Sunset Shot.

I hope the variety of these pics, taken within a couple of days, demonstrate why the Tamron 28-300XR 3.5-6.3 is my choice for awalk-around lens. It covers 90% of all situations for me. I only take it off and use one of my other lenses when I need a) a wider angle, b) low light indoor shots without flash c) an even longer tele zoom. Other than that it serves me well and it compares in quality and sharpness with any of the best lenses out there as I demonstrated in the latter part of this string: http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=84

AND it even serves me well when I do my little amateur modeling shoots.
