Sony 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DT SAL-18200 review by TCav
Review Date: 8/18/2008 Would you recommend the product? No | Total Spent: $500.00| Rating: 4 

Pros: long range
Cons: Soft, dim, CA, distortion.

I bought this lens with my KM5D, thinking it would do everything I wanted. Upon close examination of the results, I found that everything it did, it did poorly.

I have since replaced it will mulitple lenses, each with less ambitious zoom ranges, and get much better results.

Zoom lenses are compromises, and superzoom lenses are supercompromises. This is a "jack of all trades and master of none" lens, and that wasn't enough for me.

Pros: good all around
Cons: plastic mount

good lens all around, only things what I didnt like was plastick mount, and motor litle loud .
over all , good lens, sharp auto focus, and good zoom.
zoom and focus rings are ribbed rubber ,good Build Quality feels very solid for $500 lens.
This is not an image-stabilized lens.
comes with lens hood, and caps.
