what's it like at 200mm? my mk1 is a bit rubbish at that fl.

Wondering about that too. Do not use it handheld past 150mm. Otherwise it's fine. But a bit heavy. Weight of the new one? (difficult to find).

It is more easy to find, if You use the "Flat view" in the forum and look at the already written posts:

402 g (14.2 oz) and Your lens?

Really dont know the weight, it does not look like the Samsung D-Xenon 50-200 F4-5.6 ED, not got rubber "knots" but "lines", and got an af/mf switch and letters iFn...

A bit problems with softness to the right side I think, did not notice at first, switched from OIS 1 to 2, did not help. Maybe turn off stabilization, if I find out where to do it...

Softness on only one side of the frame indicates a manufacturing defect or similar, "decentering" is often what it is referred to as, an optical element isn't aligned quite right.  This is disturbingly common in standard zooms from all manufacturers.
