Re: 55-210 vs 18-200

I brought the tamron 18-200 for my nex 5. I took it to New York along with my 18-55 and my sigma 30mm. What I found was, I did not use the other lenses, just the zoom as it gave me every thing I needed. I did have the 55-210 but found it very slow to focus during the day and night. I now have the nex 6 and the tamron stays on my camera 90% of the time. If you were to take one lens then the 18-200 would be the one. Try one out most shops will be happy to let you...

I see zeiss are to bring out a 16-80 lens later this year, can't wait to see this lens
