I know this question has been asked many times and I've done tons of reading on what people recommend but I am just plain stuck. I have a D50 with a 28-80 and 70-300. Both came with the kit. I'm looking for one lens to replace both. I take mostly photographs of my family even though I’m starting to get into taking other types of pictures such as nature, buildings, sunsets, etc. Unfortunately, the 18-200 VR is out of my price range. I've been considering the following:

- Nikon 28-200 f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF
- Tamron 18-200 f/3.5-6.3
- Tamron 28-200 F3.8-5.6
- Tamron AF 28-300 F/3.5-6.3 XR Di
- Sigma 18-200 f/3.5-6.3
- Sigma 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG Macro

Can anyone recommend one of these or another lens based on my situation?
Thanks
Scott
