The SEL18200 is pretty heavy and on my NEX-3 it's all lens and a bit body

I bought it mainly for subject isolation and it does a great job for me. Image stabilization is also amazing with this lens.

Here are two sample shots with 200mm. I think the sharpness is still pretty good (considered it's ISO1600) and the subject isolation works pretty well.
