"Need help in choosing lens"

Hi,

I need help in choosing 3rd party lens. I want the 18-200mm lens but Nikon is a bit expensive. I'm looking at Sigma, Tamron and Tokina.

Any advice on which ones to choose?


Thank you in advance!

Btw, pinoy po ako. =)

Kumusta na Rocel? Welcome to the Kape!

Madami namang Nikonians na gumagamit nang third-party brands. Isip ko - comparable lahat sila if you remove the Nikon 18-200 out of the equation. Malapit ang Sigma, kasi me OS at HSM na, which was really the defining factors that kept Sigma a distant second nuon. Tamron is also very close, as they're building more and more lenses with built-in motors (BIM) and their own brand of optical stabilization. Tokina to me is excelling more in the wide-angle space with multiple offerings that cover the 11-24 range, some at f2.8.

I think any of the options are equally good. Kasi multi-purpose lens diba? The expectation is na hindi gagamitin mo at full-aperture, you're going to be stopping down at any focal length para makuha mo ang max image quality. So it's a matter of near super-zoom like the new 18-270 or keeping it more manageable with one of the 18-200 clones.

Thank you sa pag welcome sir! Bago pa lang po kasi ako sa dlsr. Kaso po, na-assign po ako na magkuha ng class picture sa school na pinagtatrabahuhan ko.

2nd hand ko lang po kasi nabili yung D50, ang kasamang lens is 28-80mm. nagkakaproblema po ako kasi yung kuha ko sa mga bata, medyo malayo pag 28mm ang focal length ko. pag 18 po, medyo wide po ng kaunti. tama po ba?

thank you sir sa info na binigay nyo. nakatulong ng malaki sa akin na newbie pa lang. =)

eto pa po sir, parang nikon na tlga ang gusto kong lens. ang pinagpipilian ko naman po, 18-105 VR at 18-135. ano po ang maisa-suggest nyo na bilhin ko?

maraming salamat po.

Between the two - 18-105. Walang VR ang 135, and mas malakas ang Chromatic Aberration (CA) effects on the longer lens - titira sa image quality mo.
