Upcoming Tamron 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3

Hi guys

I am due to receive my new a6600 and 16-55 lens on Monday. The 70-350 was not in stock so I cancelled that lens as there was no telling when it would be received, what with chip and production disruptions.

But then the Tamron was announced. Now I know that this 18-300 is no substitute for a dedicated telephoto lens. I am hoping that the center of the lens might just be "good enough" for flowers and birds. It would also then handily double as a travel lens.

So my question is, does anyone understand what these MTF charts mean?


The charts show 18mm, 200mm and 300mm. What are these measurements indicating about the lens quality?
