18-200 test shots
Oct 5, 2008

We have had several copies of the 18-200 for the weekend. Compared it on the Xti with several alternatives including the 5D/24-85, 5D/70-300 DO and 5D/24-105, as well as the Xti/24-85 option. This lens (the best copy) looks like a very capable lens.

All pics are untouched jpg's and compare favorably to all the combo's mentioned. The are some CA on selected shots which are easily fixed in LR. Sharpness seems excellent, even at 18mm.

All pics shot at 400 ISO, P mode. Originals on the pbase site. We were surprised, given the mostly average reaction to the lens. Look forward to any thoughts . . .
