While there’s certainly an element of truth to this, it overlooks one fundamental advantage – that you can cover a huge range of subjects without having to change lenses between shots. If you’re out on your own, taking your time, this is no big deal.
Like many Nikon users I had the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm lenses for my D5500. After a while I got fed up with having to take two lenses. I sometimes made the wrong choice of taking one or the other on hikes. I saw this Tamron 18-200mm and the price and performance looked well in the online reviews.
I rated this lens as 3 stars, "It's OK" only because it is probably suitable for people wanting "record shots" that will never be enlarged or examined critically. This lens is NOT suitable for anyone who truly pursues photography as more than simple record keeping.
There are cons and pros to this lens. The mount is plastic which, while it helps with the weight, it doesn't feel as durable as my Nikon 55-300. You also loose an F stop of aperture compared to the 200mm zoom Nikon lenses, The zoom isn't as smooth as the Nikon lenses either and it requires more...
