Used Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DI-II VC for $125 [C]

The popularity of superzoom digital cameras also fueled a parallel superzoom lens “zoom ratio war”. If instead you prefer a more modest, old-school superzoom ratio, the Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DI-II VC goes for $199 in new condition, or you can get it for $179 manufacturer refurbished at Adorama.

If you are a Canon shooter and if you are looking to save a sizeable chunk of that, thanks to the 20% off in-cart promotion at Amazon Warehouse Deals, you can get this camera in USED – Very Good condition for $124~ with free shipping after the in-cart discount. There are multiple listings of this, so price may drop over time. Remember, AWD offers a 30-day return policy, but makes no warranty promises.

If you are looking for something in-between those two options, the Nikon version is available in USED EX+ condition (Excellent plus) at KEH Camera for $149 plus shipping. And if you buy it before 12/31/17, you get a 365-day warranty instead of the usual 180-day.
