Having a superzoom has advantages, but also drawbacks, first of all is small aperture (most of them at 200 are around F6).

This means you need stabilization, not only to shot sharp, but also to lock the target easily.

So, putting a Tamron with stabilization on top of a Alpha adapter ends up in a quite high cost and a quite unusable kit.

Id only be getting the Tamron if I get the a77 towards the end of the year. If I stick with my NEX only, then I will get the e mount 18-200, unless there is significant improvements at the 55-200 range on the 55-200 when that comes out.
