I agree with Ruben. Also the 28-300 will have bad image quality as the focal range is massive. The 18-200 will still sacrifice image quality for focal range but if you only want one lens this is a good option. Don't expect the image quality to much better than your kit lens!

Thanks.
Yes, i want it to be my only lens, as i find it difficult and risky changing from kit lens and 75-300mm, and i can't afford 2nd body.

If i go for 18-200, should i buy Tamron or Sigma. I heard Tamron has better AF, but Sigma has better Image Quality.
