I'm going to be purchasing a new lens this next week for a trip to the Smoky Mountains. I'm considering an 18-200mm lens.
My camera is the Nikon D5100 DSLR.
Could anyone give me their opinion of how the Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro Zoom Lens with Built In Motor for Nikon Digital SLR (Model A14NII) compares with the Nikon 18-200mm AF-S VR II ?
I really want something to capture the sweeping vistas in the mountains. But I don't want to carry more than 2 lenses
