    Your take on the 18-200mm zoom?

    I find it quite nice between 30-100mm, above 100mm it gets softer.

    Did not use it much wide yet.

    This was shot with 22mm (perspective corrected in CS5:

    That looks excellent Uwe - decent sharp corners.

    I think this lens would need a tripod collar? Did you use it from a tripod and how did it work.

    Assuming the question is for me, no, it was handheld. I'm a total beginner at photography with NEX5 being my first non-P&S camera. At least these shots will show you what's the worst this lens can do at the hands of a newbie :P

    I plan to take regular photo field trips with my young son around town, and the sel18200 is the only E-mount lens I take for AF. The reason is I want to leave room for other MF M-mount lenses in my small bag so I can practice with them.

    Sorry about that, I didn't know the Amazon S3 link was only temporary. I've uploaded the images to my album here on GetDPI, but I think there's a file size and dimension limit here, so it will automatically resize them.

    I believe DPR albums will allow you to download the original size image:

    I love the 18-200 zoom, but I'll leave it to better photographers to prove what it can do.
