Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HS M | C £370/$500

What’s good: Big zoom range, good im­age qual­ity, im­pres­sive build qual­ity. What’s bad: Fo­cus ring ro­tates dur­ing aut­o­fo­cus, a bit on the heavy side. Our ver­dict: Out­per­forms the Tam­ron 16-300mm in some re­spects.

Nikon AF-S DX 18-200mm f/3.55.6G ED VR II £650/$650

What’s good: High-spec aut­o­fo­cus and VR, good over­all per­for­mance. What’s bad: Lim­ited zoom range next to more re­cently launched su­per­zooms. Our ver­dict: It’s a nice lens, but of­fers rel­a­tively poor value com­pared with Sigma and Tam­ron com­peti­tors.
