What would you say the difference would be between as you say the lower quality 18-200 zoom lens and the latex sony 70-200? For my shooting the latter would mean a second body. If the quality is really undermined then I guess i have to bite the bullet and carry two lenses. Sorry about the geek factor scenario.

I compared my E18-200 Tamron to my FE 70-200 on the A7r. The 70-200 is much sharper over the whole range. It also has better contrast and much less CA.

Of course it's unfair to compare these two lenses, but at 70-200 the FE lens wins by a big margin.
