Default Lens help.

Hello all.

I am looking to buy a new super-zoom lens for my Canon 350D. I have read reviews on the Sigma 18-200 F3.5-6.5 DC OS and, to me, it looks like a good lens.

Does anybody have any advice on this lens or any other lens you could recommend?

Thanks :-)

Hi, I had this lens a while ago, it is not sharp at all unless you close down the f stops and the autofocus might not work well... If you have a little bit of money I would strongly suggest that you look for a Canon L serie (17-40 f4 L for instance), and I am not sure that such a big zoom is important, the other alternative is the 17-70 from Sigma... Note that the quality is not always there with Sigma...
