I think you should probably sell the lens for parts.

If you are using E-mount, you can try the Tamron 70-180mm. Its not 200mm, but its pretty close.

The A-mount Tamron is very sharp, but it has significant focus breathing if you like to zoom in, near the minimum focus distance.

I never noticed it with my Tamron 70-200 f2.8. If I don't notice it then I don't consider it significant.

I had similar issues with the SAL70400 SSM II. Sony no longer carried the parts rendering the lens completely useless.
