What am I missing? I`m trying to understand why everyone feels it`s such a good lens? I see very little detail in the feathers, texture, etc. Certainly not very sharp at 200mm.

It's true that the lens won't win any awards for sharpness, especially at that FL.

But the main advantage of it is the versatility, 18-200mm means it can be used almost anywhere. It's also got great stabilisation and autofocus and most importantly silent autofocus, which makes it a brilliant video lens - at 4k it performs excellently.

OK,  I`ll buy that answer especially seeing how I misread the 18mm wide end.

My apologies . Got to get new glasses!
