Sony 18-105/4 not that good
5 months ago

Originally I had a favorable impression of the Sony 18-105mm lens, it actually fared well on the charts, except for the corners. But it didn't do as well in real life. Wide open it's pretty bad, producing a lot of halation and smearing. Some side by side comparison here.

Sony 18-105mm @ f/4

Fuji 55-200mm @ f/4
