Good, but not quite good enough

Avedon if only, Amazon

  • Summary: As an oldtime Minolta 35mm photographer, I was excited when Sony took over the brand because I thought all my old lenses would have a new lease of life. But that didn't happen - about three years ago I purchased the 18-200mm Sony zoom with an A100 and shot comparisons with my Minolta AF lenses.

Sony's Good, wide ranging lens

ben25wood, Ebay

  • Summary: Could have rated "excellant for this price", but that's not what's asked. For a reasonable price, one can get the Sony 18-200mm lens. I've noticed no "bothersome" distortion at Any range. NO pincushioning. Nearly inperceptable barrel distortion, but not shot smearing at 18-20mm.

Within a whisker of a $2,000 Nikon lens - at the same apertures

  • Summary: I spent five hours yesterday comparing pictures from this lens (which I thought would be markedly inferior) on a Sony A100 with those from a friend's Nikon D200 ($1,400 today) with a 70-200mm f2.8 lens ($2,000).

  • Summary: It's a great all around lens. Very sharp. Well built, but kind of noisy on the focus. Works well for most of photography project.
  • Pros: * Sharp!, * 18-200mm Good range, * Comes with a hood. I use to be a Canon user and most of the lens hood came separate.
  • Cons: Focus could be a faster., Bit noisy on the focus, but you can't beat the shutter sound from the camera.

Good range for all-in-one design

Hiram Grant "just call me Sam", Amazon

  • Summary: If you're going with the Alpha 100, and looking for a good, all-in-one design, then look no further. Built specifically for digital, this is the Konica-Minolta 18-200 lens repackaged for the Sony, which included a bit of restyling. Optically, this is a solid performer.

Schönwetter- Reiseobjektiv

Norbert, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: Mit dem Kauf eine Sony Alpha 55 hatte ich auf Empfehlung ein Sigma 18-250 gekauft. Das Gewicht von 650g als auch der links drehende Zoom waren für mich jedoch störend. Ich habe mich deshalb entschlossen auf das Sony SAL 18200 umzusteigen.
