The shot was taken at 8.00 at night and the aperture was F7,,,,1/60th,,,,,,,,,,not bad performance for a lens under £300!...I'm sorry I dont know about the VC, I never had any problems with shake . I would try for a second hand old version!

Can you expect the same reusults from a Tamaron 18/250 it just offers more scope at the wider end of the lens which is what Im looking for in an all purpose lens.
I would like to think so!....optics are improving all the time,Im a big fan of Tamron, the build quality is good and price for price they are hard to beat...pity you couldn't borrow one for a few test shots!......good luck with whatever you choose and I'm sure you will get the best out whatever you buy!....all the best my friend!.......Ken
Try reading the review at ...........PopPhoto.com............They were quite impressed...........Ken
Personally I would rather lug 3 decent lenses around all day and only end up using 1, than stick a super zoom on and compromise on all fronts.
An 18-200 is borderline for sweeping landscapes and a big step down from the 10-20 in that area, and not long enough at the other end for wildlife.
The 28-300 Tamron overlaps with your current lens but leaves you with a big hole at the wide angle end after allowing from the crop factor.
I would look to replace the kit lens with the recently announced Pentax 17-70mm when it comes out as that will give you complete coverage from 10-300mm with your current lenses. Then buy a bag (I would recommend a lowepro slingshot 200) that is comfortable enough for the extra kit not to be an issue.
Cheers Ken just read up the report and thats the 2nd positive report I have read to date.
Thanks Neil I will check the new pentax lens out Im in no hurry.
