Any thoughts on Sony 55-210 (SEL5510)?

I have the a6400 with the kit 18-135, 16-50, and Sigma 30/1.4. I absolutely love the 18-135 as a regular walk around lens, but I know from past experience that there are times when I like a little more reach. I tried the 55-210 several years ago when I had an NEX 5N and then 5R and wasn't all that impressed with it, but in retrospect, that could have been more related to my own lack of skill in taking good pictures. At that time, I ended up buying a Sony 18-200, which I really liked. Unfortunately, that gear was all stolen last summer.

This morning, I came across a 55-210 in really good condition for a great price, but I think I remember seeing a post on here where someone said you can get as good of quality with cropping a pic at 135mm to around 200mm from the 18-135 as you'll get from the 55-210. Before dropping money on the lens, I wanted to see what others' experiences have been with that.

Thanks!
