Has anyone had experience with both of these or, if not can anyone tell me their experience with either. I have found some info but not a great deal and am considering a lens in this range for my 6400 and wonder which might be best. I have the 16-300mm Tamron for my Canon 7dMKII and have been very surprised at its quality.

I have been using the Sony 18-200 OSS (Silver version) since 2012 first on the NEX 5N and later on the A6000 and am very satisfied with its results. I do not have any experience with the Sony 18-200 E nor the 18-200 Tamron. The majority of the photos in my flickr albums were shot with the Sony 18-200.

If you need the reach, get the silver version, if not get the 18-135 which seems to have found wide acceptance.
