I am planning to purchase my D5200 soon and I need some help with lens choices.
- Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM
- Nikon AF-S 18-55mm VR f/3.5-5.6G & AF-S 55-200mm VR f/4-5.6G IF-ED
Both of the options above are affordable with similar price range and I am not too concerned about portability (willing to carry two lenses)
Here are my questions:
- Which option would allow my D5200 to perform optimally?
- Does having a single zoom lens to cover same focal length necessarily harm image quality as some say?
- Would image quality degradation (if any) be significant?
Any opinions/comments on the lenses mentioned above are more than welcomed.
If you can suggest any other affordable lens combinations that covers 18mm to 200mm, please leave a comment below.
