Sony announced its E 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 LE alongside the new NEX-F3 mirrorless digital camera, not to replace the existing E-mount 18-200mm but to provide a smaller and more portable travel zoom.

We've put the lens through its paces in our test lab: does smaller come out better? Click here to read our full review of the Sony E 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 LE lens!
