I own a NEX6 I think the original Sony 18-200 has an advantage in being originally for video in shooting video. However I decided on the Tamron 18-200 because of its size and weight and it seems to be identical in my comparing the two lens at my camera store. The photo and video looked the same (despite the video advantage of the Sony) on a 55 inch Samsung 240hz LCD. But I suggest trying the lens on a  NEX6 I found out the Sony 18-200 because of it's size was not comfortable to use. Because of that and that I could not justify the Sony for being significanly better and  the same in photo and video (only costlier) I got the Tamron. Just my opinion but I'm very satified with the Tamron. However, I could not find the Sony LE to test.
