"All in one" Walk around Lenses for the Nikon D90!

Do you own an all in one lens? That’s one lens that does it all! A lens that covers everything from wide landscapes to zoomed in close-ups of wildlife and sports. I’ve never even tried one on my D90 yet but I’m thinking about getting one soon…I guess the true term of these lenses is a walk around lens. Not having to constantly change lenses in certain situations might be nice at times…

I know specific individual lens take better images for what they are made for so I’ll always keep them available. But some days just walking around it might be nice to just have one lens that can do it all. We all know about or heard of the Nikon AF-S Zoom-Nikkor ED 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF DX VR. This seemed to be the one everyone gets. I believe there is a newer version that came out also. So the price might have come down a bit on the original. I’ve always read great reviews on this lens but for me I was hoping for something a little longer then 200mm. I’ve been reading a lot about the New Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens. This lens won the EISA 2011-2012 best product award and seems to be what I’m looking for! Actually Tamron makes two of these lenses, the Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC is a little older but still gets good reviews…..

Do any of you have or shoot either of these lenses? Or any suggestions for me?
