Hi Everybody,
I read good review on Tamron 18-200mm one i will buy soon. But i have also noticed Tamroon 70-300mm alot cheaper than this model. Anyone's feedback on the difference and quality of both these lenses will be greatly appreciated. Since 70-300mm is much cheaper i wonder if it's not as good as 18-200mm.

Hi A100, and welcome to the Camera Labs forum!
You've certainly read the review here: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Tamron18200mm/ or have a look there. The 70-300mm is reviewed over here.
The 70-300mm is a tad soft at the long end. The best option seems to be the new 18-250mm (tested there) as it has the better IQ than the 18-200mm.
The benefit of the super-zoom is that you don't have to carry (and switch between) two lenses, so you don't miss a shot and don't get dust into your camera.

I can also recommend Minolta 70-210mm f/4 (aka beercan) which is an old lens but much sharper than at leas the 75-300mm Also has better colors and bokeh IMHO. This you have to buy used though.
