    I have own the tamron 18-200mm before but I still use the 18-70mm kit lens more. In the end I sold it away.

    tamron seems better wide and mid range, sigma seems better at the long end..

    I have the Tamron before and feels that it has a slight edge in build over the Sigma.
    Also Tamron comes with 3 years warrenty.
    In terms of picture quality both are neck to neck and don't expect too much on a super zoom.

    Actually can't tell much difference.
    Was using this before switching to the 18-200.

    I'm using a Sigma 18-200

    the reason of choosing the Sigma over the Tamron is a build quality. Tamron has a plastic mounting while the Sigma has a metal one and Sigma feels rather Solid to me.

    But Given a Choice...I would have taken the Nikkor 18-200mm VR

    I prefer the tamron. Image quality is slightly better than sigma and I like the feel..
    Life is like photography, we develop from the negatives.

    Mmmm Tamron mount is not all plastic, it is a hybrid with metal inside and engineering plastic outside. Somehow I feel the mounting for Tamron is smoother.
    Actually is is still better to go for the Nikon 18-200 if you are using Nikon camera.
