The SEL18200LE is back at Sony for the 2nd time. The firmware update really screwed up what was once a great copy of this lens . . . hopefully they will restore it to its previously excellence and we will use option A for travel and the EA2/SAL70300G and SAL500f80 for action/BIF stuff.

How did the firmware update screw up the lens? What were the symptoms and how do they fix it?

I have no idea. When it went to Loredo it had a focus issue and I ask them for the firmware update.  It came back unusable . . Sharp as ever in the center and blurry on both sides at 200mm, f8 (right worse than left).  I sent then files showing the problem . . . We will see what we get back.
