Sony Alpha SEL18200 E-mount 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Lens – Product Description:
The Sony 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DT Lens for NEX Cameras is a can-do lens that can handle everything from wide landscape photos to portraits to sports, action and even wildlife photography with the telephoto up to 200mm. And the results will be brilliant, with ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass that minimizes flare and greatly reduces chromatic aberration, fast internal focusing, 13 groups and 15 elements (including aspherical elements that correct visual aberrations across the entire zoom range), and a circular aperture for more pleasing out-of-focus areas. This lens is not recommended for use with full-frame DSLRs.

Sony Alpha SEL18200 E-mount 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Lens – Customer Review:
ALL IN ALL A GOOD LENS!
I have been using this lens for about a month, so I think that I have a good feel for it.
1- It has one of the best optical stabilization systems that I have ever used.
2 – Its range of 18mm-200mm is amazing.
3 – It feels firm and solidly built.
4 – It produces crisp and sharp pictures when the light is good.
1- The control ring is strictly “by wire” and does not inherently control anything. Therefore it forces you to go into the camera’s god-awful menus and submenus before you can manually control anything. I found this to be so much of a pain that when I want to slip into a manual operation I find it easier to simply remove the Sony lens and put on a third party manual lens.
2 – It is very slow. It does not work well in low light conditions.
You should definitely have this in your kit. But do not expect it to do everything that you want. Make sure you have a few good, fast, manual prime lenses to cover the situations where this will fail.
