I currently have a Nikon D5100 with its kit lenses(18mm-55mm and 55mm-300mm). I am heading to Europe for a few months and don't really want to have to carry around 2 lenses when I out doing touristy stuff.
I've been looking at buying a Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR which I think should cover most of what I need. Need some advice if people think this will be suitable.
I've also notice some 3rd party lenses which seems to give more bang for my buck (Tamron/Sigma) how do these stack up to Nikon lenses?
