Hi there

I have the chance to purchase on e of these lenses at an ok -ish price and wondered if anyone on here has any experience of it.

I will be using it with a D7000

Look at the Lenstip review and also Photozone review of the Sigma 18-200. They both gave it rather low marks for optical performance. I would suggest you look at the Tamron versions such as the 18-250 and 18-270. Both get good reviews. Make sure you get the VC version because there is no in body IS on Nikons.

Hope this helps

Check out the Photozone reviews of the Tamron and Sigma lenses with Nikon mounts, it should answer your questions.
You could also look for the lenses I suggested on the LCE [London Camera Exchange] web site. They have vast numbers of used lenses, most with a 3 Month warrenty.
