I've read many reviews and opinions that Sigma 18-50/3.5-5.6 DC is a little
sharper than Canon 18-55 and better built. But if you have already the
Canon's with a kit, then I think it's better to get something like
55-200/4-5.6 DC which also have good reviews and it's only $160.
Actually, both lenses are sold now as a set for $260 at B&H, Adorama...
I have Canon 18-55 and didn't test it long enough, but I've seen very very
nice images of others.
I'm considering right now a few not expensive lenses, like
Sigma 28-200/3.5-5.6 Compact Hyper Zoom Aspher. Macro...or Canon
80-200/4.5-5.6 II...or Sigma 55-200/4-5.6 DC...or Sigma 28-80/3.5-5.6
Aspher. macro(Popular Phot. magazine tested it and says "impressive
results")....or Canon 28-105/4-5.6 USM IF - it's not the more expensive
one, but according to Pop. Phot. magazine, it produced very sharp slides...
So...I'm still thinking...
