[ACQUIRED] Tamron or Sigma 18-200 (or 18-125 or 18-250)

Hello, everyone. Now I am looking for an inexpensive used walkaround zoom that I can take with me on those occasions when my fear of missing the shot is greater than my concern over IQ -- trips to the zoo with my son, etc. I love my primes, but there are just a few situations where they are not ideal, and a superzoom would be.

I am looking to spend no more than $125 including shipping to Canada, and I know that limits me to the older off-brand zooms. I have a bit of flexibility with price, in case someone is desperate to let go of an 18-250mm, but I will be comparing size as well as cost and zoom range. I know sometimes the Tammie design for a certain range will be bigger, and sometimes a Sigma will be, and less big would be nice . . .

Anyway, anyone who might be able to help me, you need only send a PM!
