hello I was wondering if anyone who has a nex-6 and the tamron lens mentioned above is having an issue with the lens where you will lose aperture control? the f-stop is blank on the screen and you have to to turn the camera on and off to get it back. it appears to be when I zoom in and out where the lens will have a brain fart based on the range and lose aperture control. its not all the time but it gets annoying have to shut the camera off to "fix" the issue.  I have sent it out for service...

I would love to hear everyone(s) opinions and/or experience on having both the kit 16-50 kit and Tamron 18-200 super zoom: I've been using a 5n for a few years and recently purchased a 6 (integrated flash and EVF was what did it).
