I agree with Mike and Thom, so your losing the battle!

I strongly disagree with both of your statements.

Well, if a lens only reaches 200mm at infinity and has significant
loss of focal length at any shorter subject distance, I think the
statement "which doesn't really go to 200 for most uses" is justified.

And I happen to agree with that comment - the zoom range of the 16-85
is really not that far behind the 18-200 "for most uses", and I
persoanlly value the 16-18mm range more than the range above 85mm
which I will gladly switch to a longer lens for.

Cheers

Mike
