What to do lens issue

howdy i have a sigma 28-200, And i have just recieved the pentax 18-250mm lens. However I can quite honestly say i am getting nicer shots from the sigma over the pentax, I was going to sell the sigma and buy a sigma 10-20mm however i may just send the 18-250 back, and just have the 28-200 and the 10-20mm lens what you say folks?

If you're attracted to the 10-20 range, sure, by all means, go ahead.

But I personally wouldn't be leaping to conclusions about the 28-200 being better than 18-250 just based on pictures you happened to have taken with both unless you were doing real controlled tests. The 28-200 may have *appeared* to perform better because you happened to be using it on a day with more light allowing faster shutter speeds, or you had different camera settings, or any of a number of other variables.

I point this out because based on everything I've heard, there is pretty much no way the 28-200 should be performing anywhere near as well as the 18-250.

smc-DA 18-55 II + smc-DA 50-200 are a better choice! Or smc-DA 40 Limited + 50-200.

Sorry I can't help, but I've been torn between the 10-20, 10-17, and 12-24 myself. Can't seem to make up my mind. I will probably end up going for an old Vivitar or Sigma MF prime somewhere in that focal range...
