  • Sony 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DT SAL-18200

    4 out of 10 points and not recommended
    long range
    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.
