    Hey Guys and Gals,

    I am getting ready to purchase a 18-200mm lens.

    Is there a $220 quality difference between the Nikon and Quantary?

    Thanks,

    Go with the Nikon,
    It is a good lens with lots of great reviews, plus you get VR on the lens.

    Most def the Nikon. I pretty much stay with them Sigma and Tamron.

    Go with the Nikon lens, though I have tested the lens myself and would personally go with getting an 18-55mm and a 55-200mm. You get MUCH less distortion and the chromatic aberration is less noticeable. Unless you're going for one all around lens, then definitely get the 18-200mm VR.

    For $220? The Nikkor is WELL worth it. Get the Nikkor lens. Quantarays are not really well known for being quality lenses in this class at all.

    Qunataray is a rebrand of sigma or tamron, not it's own stand alone brand.
