  2. From reading posts made by people that actually own the lens they seem
    to be pleased with it. From the photos I have seen it looks like a good
    lens. I have been using the non-OS version on this lens for two years
    and find it to be a very good value and very versatile. If the optical
    quality and focus ability of the OS version is as good or better than
    the non-OS version you'll probably be satisfied with it. Keep in mind
    it isn't the equivalent of Canon's "L" series but then again neither is
    its price.

    This lens was announced last September but remains vaporware, as in: does
    not exist.

    it definitely exists, and quite a few people on dpreview have it and
    have been posting samples.

    You should consider the Tamron 18-200 as well. I think it`s a better choice.

    The Tamron is not a stabilized lens. Is the IQ that much better?
    Personally I would find an OS lens with such small apertures (f/6.3 at
    200mm) much more useful. Tamron also just released a 18-250, but again max
    aperture at 250mm is f/6.3 and it's not stabilized.

  7. Actually, if anyone considers a Tamron super zoom lens it should be the
    18-250mm. It is showing to be a very good lens. IMO, the Sigma
    18-200mm has better build quality and slightly better optics than its
    Tamron counterpart. The Tamron 18-250mm is better than the Sigma
    18-200mm, once again, IMHO.

    Nope. IMHO, the Tamron 18-200 mm is a better choice compared to the Sigma.
    Especially in optics.
     
  9. When I compared them two years ago I gave an edge to the Sigma. Not a
    huge difference but an edge. The Tamron 18-250mm is better than both
    18-200mm lenses.

    Two years ago the OS Sigma didn't exist, only the non-OS. Any idea how the
    OS version compares?

  11. From the reviews I've read from users it is a good lens. The OS works
    well. As for optical quality it looks to be as good or better than the
    non-OS version. It seems to be a good value. I do think the Tamron
    18-250mm has better picture quality but it is not an OS lens.
