Well, I read the area suggested by Vlad. Carefully. Very Carefully.

I noticed something.

On compact DSLR, the Tamron's performance was stellar. Strong approval. On midsize or full frame DSLR, performance was mediocre to poor, with softness and autofocus problems.

Those that loved it, loved it. Those that hated it, hated it, and we had one fence-sitter.

One camera, mentioned several times as being a winner when coupled with the 18-270 was the d5100.

Checking Amazon, the Nikon costs, today, USED, about $100 more than the Tamron, USED. Nikon NEW about $850. Tamron NEW about $450.

Ahhhhh. If I were made o' money...

The reason it's taking me so long to decide is once I buy, that's it. I keep it, I learn it, I use it, whatever its warts.

DigitalRev did a couple of videos with long time camera pros using cheapo, lousy cameras. It was amazing the pictures they took.

I may buy a 50, and, later, something extravagant. But my initial purchase is to last a year.

I really appreciate all your advice, and I am listening, closely.
