Hi, new to this forum and as well as SLR photography. I currently have a Canon T1i with an 18-55IS and 75-300mm lenses. My recent vacation trip made me realize how cumbersome it was to switch between lenses thus I'm in search for a 'travel lens'. I've been reading up on both Canon 18-200IS and Tamron 18-270 and the comparison seem at par. This is why I'm looking for some feedback from you guys with first hand experience with either or both.

Also I'm open to suggestions on going a different route with my current lenses. Say, 18-135mm perhaps? Let me know. Thanks everyone!!

I have the Tamron 18-270... and am still in a love hate relationship with it. Generally speaking it is decent enough on the wide to mid range, but falls off in sharpness on the long end a bit more than I'd like.

Also consider the Sigma 18-250 OS HSM too.

Canon DSLRs: 7D2, 7D1, 5D2, 1D, 600D, 450D full spectrum, 300D IR mod
Lenses: EF 35/2, 85/1.8, 135/2+SF, 70-300L, 100-400L, 100L, MP-E 65, EF-S 10-18, 15-85
3rd party: Zeiss 2/50 makro, Samyang 8mm fisheye, Sigma 50/1.4A, 150 macro, 120-300 f/2.8 OS
Compacts: Sony HX9V, Fuji X100.
