    You will never get the same IQ from an 18-270 as from your 2 separate lenses...

    why not just sell the underutilized lens?
    Why must sell both and buy a superzoom lens, unless you're saying that the main reason why you don't use the telezoom is because of laziness to carry it along, or swap lenses?

    if it is underutilized, means you don't need/use it often..
    i would suggest keep it, just in case you need one day..

    or..

    sell the 70-300 and DON'T buy the superzoom.. if it is underutilized, chance is, you will not going to use the tele ends of the superzoom, but instead losing IQ also in the wide end, also slower in the wider end..

    just keep (or sell it if you want, since you don't use it often anyway..) and keep the 17-50mm, which you use most of the time..

    keep the 17-50 vc, sell the tammy 70-300 usd(should bag u S$500-600) than get a prosumer super zoom series(should be around S$500-700 range)
    i buy i sell i use, repeat, such are the vicious endless cycle of GAS

    If you don't use the 70-300 much, it means you don't need that range. No point changing to a 18-270, you will not use the 70-270 range and will waste it. You should just sell the 70-300. If you find that a lot of your shots are taken at 17mm then you could consider buying an ultrawide zoom.

    fujifilm HS10/HS20 is good ultrazoom, or wait for nikon coolpix P500 (22.5mm-810mm in 35mm equiv.), which costs around US$400 brand new..

    and use it as back up body..

    You should keep the 17-50mm due to the useful f2.8

    Sell the 70-300mm if you dun need & fund for others.
