opinion? - Tamron 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II Macro

*copied from dslr forum, couldnt figure out how to delete my own post, admin only?*

hi all... just got a k200d 2 months ago. the 18-55 kit lens da II is pretty good kit glass and pretty soon ill be getting the fa 50mm f1.4. next step would be a zoom lens, and i was thinking of the Tamron 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II Macro as it covers the whole range and does macro too, so i think it would be a decent jack of all trades, and maybe sell my kit lens. my needs for now are simple.

any opinion on the tamron? popphoto has a favorable review on it.
