A good reason - not mentioned in this thread so far (or did I just not find it?) - to get the 18-200, besides the longer reach, is that it has a power zoom.

This is not true. The SEL18200LE is not a power zoom.

Not only that, for me the power zoom is not a great feature.  Only really would be useful, in my opinion, for video.  I far prefer manual zoom, and the electronic zoom on the PZ lenses is not for me.  I "tolerate" it on my 18-105.
