I think I've read that at the telephoto range, there is a bit of softness especially at 200mm. Were these observations made with handheld performance? What I want to know is whether the lens produce sharp results from 18mm to 200mm when mounted on a tripod? Will 150mm to 200mm produce adequately sharp results when mounted on a tripod?

Thanks!

Maybe OOC, with soft JPG settings, but not if you sharpen in post.

Below from the original 18200:

Thanks for the response. Were these shots handheld or taken with a tripod?
