Curious how it compares to the Sony 18-200

With the A77 I used the Tamron 18-270 quite intensely. After some years the rubber of the zoom ring started to loosen and had to be replaced. After using it for 6+ years this happened again and there were slight problems with the AF motor. I bought a second hand lens while looking for a replacement system.

With the A6400 I also bought a SEL18200LE. There already was a Tamron alternative but my previous experience combined with the fact that the Sony lens was supported by the camera for automatic compensation of distortion, vignetting and so on drove met to the Sony lens.

Both the Tamron 18-300 and the SEL18200LE have similar aperture ranges and the difference at the tele end is not that much for my use cases. Still it would be nice to see a comparison between these lenses.
