    Tamron NEX 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 review - a review of the lens. it's got a pretty poor reputation - i think dxomark puts it on the bottom of the list. i got it cheap and use it pretty regularly for it's versatility. autofocus seems fine in good light, but gets unreliable as it gets darker. shocking, i know.

    Great shots! DXO is sometimes overrated and overly hyped in importance. I've also produced and others too, fine photos from 'inferior' lenses.
    I've looked for one of these for cheap. Thanks for the showcase post.

    thanks all.

    yeah, these 'crappy' lenses are more than adequate for a noob like me. i mostly still compose by cropping anyway, so corner sharpness means very little at this point. that said, you definitely won't be reading the fine print from 100m like some of that fancy schmancy zeiss glass. for example...

    this was from about 4m and @150mm, then cropped.
