I own Nikon D5200 with 18-55mm kit lens and wants to buy my first telephoto lens. I'm much into travelling and trekking and like to do Bird, Wildlife and Landscape photography. I want a versatile lens that will be low on weight as well as cost; good on image quality and atleast the zoom of 200mm. Will the Tamron 18-200mm with VC a worthy buy? I like the quality of images produced by my kit lens so how is the quality of Tamron 18-200 wrt the kit lens 18-55? If the quality is same as the kit lens I'm happy to live with such quality! I know this lens (Tamron 18-200) wont match anyway to the pro lenses which cost 3 to 4 times for same focal length, but I'm tight on budget and don't want to spend more, but also want a versatile lens with good quality output if not exceptional. Please suggest alternatives if any. Thanks in advance!
