Re: The post is pure lunacy

I must have gotten excellent copies of both 18-55 and 55-210 as well for my 5N.

I purchased a Sony 18-200 a few days ago and other than being an "all-in-one" lens, it performed no better than the 18-55 / 55-210 combo that I own in terms of IQ, focusing speed/accuracy.
I am very with my my 18-55 55-200 combo.
I may ad the 50 1.8 when it finally starts shipping.

I ended up returning the 18-200.

unless of course you somehow managed to get a bad copy of BOTH of those lenses. As I've gotten good copies of BOTH and find them superb photographic tools. Sharp, contrasty and wonderful OSS. I have no idea what went wrong to describe them as you have, but mine are the opposite end of the spectrum. I have NO desire to replace either with any other lens as they meet and exceed my requirements. I also have pro gear that frankly doesn't bring better IQ to the table just features and focus tracking. Good luck with your glorified P&S camera.
