    Generally 18-200mm IS has better optical performance.

    It fits, but it is not a full frame lens. DC is cropped, DG is full-frame. If it was fur full frame it would be a LOT bigger and more expensive.

    bought it 3 days ago..

    at first die die wanted the sigma 18-250mm...cos 4 SLD glass is damn good specs wise

    tried the tamron first....astonished at the VC...its VC is ridiculously effective...u can see the shake stop considerably when enabling VC

    Colours are very nikon-ish..i like...(using a Canon 20D btw..)...good contrast too

    for the sigma...uhm..OS..not that fantastic uh..its not as effective as the Tamron...colour-wise...nothing great...wasn't that eye-catching for me...

    HSM...i dunno whats the big hooha...but it seems normal to me..i somehow liked the tamron "normal motor" one better....

    build-wise....i noe alot of ppl feel otherwise...but i like the tamron's build more...

    u need to try both out..at the same settings....then see wat grabs your attention..


    i tried the EF-S 18-200 during the photomarathon too..but it wasnt one of the shortlisted superzooms i had in mind..

    honestly..tamron in my opinion are top-class in the super-zoom category..

    but a lot of review mention that tamron tends to hunt alot when using AF.

    At small aperture of 6.3 and tele at 270 or 250, AF will hunt a lot more than the Canon's 5.6 at 200mm.

    Since Tamron has 20mm more reach, it will definitely hunt more than the sigma at 250 at the same apertures.
