you like the convenience of the 18-270?
I've not heard many rave reviews about the image quality or sharpness from this lens.

If you like convenience, then of course 18-55 + 75-300 is pretty redundant once you get the 18-270. I would sell them in this case.

But if it were my choice, i'd stick to the present combo.

what kind of photos do you like to take anyway?

Hmm For this case... Some people think that Tamron cover the range of 18-270!

So why do I still need a 18-55 or a 75-300?

Hmm It is convenience and you don't have to keep changing lens...

Well the sharpness or the speed might not be that good as 75-300 or 18-55.

How about efs 18-200mm? It has much better IQ than 18-270mm

sell off ur 75-300 and keep the 18-55mm, it is still gd for normal shooting...

I got the 18-250...it is light n gd for travelling...

of course, if i got the budget, i would definitely go for 18-270..:devil:

For portraits, you should look into a prime lens.

For landscape, your 18-55 will be better. Less compromises as there is less of a telefocal range.

For portrait, I would suggest you get prime lens. 50mm f/1.8 II is a good one to start off with. You can probably keep your 18-55 for landscape and sell off your 75-300. Alternatively you might want to sell off both your lens and get a 17-55 f/2.8. ;)

why the sad face?
Obviously, the major manufacturers have all got some sort of a 18-2xx lens in their line-up, which means this is a popular class of lens to own.
It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but to each his own, I say. Whatever floats your boat.
I personally would not get an 18-200 lens for my own reasons, but that's my choice.

I agree that the IQ/sharpness of Tamron 18-270mm may lose to the IQ/sharpness of the Canon 18-55mm and 75-300mm lens.

The 75-300 is actually a decently sharp lens, I bet sharper than 18-270 at that range. So if i were u I would keep to status quo as 18-270 while convenient has no so gd IQ.
