I haven't tested exactly at what aperture it's sharpest at, but usually I get very sharp results between f/4.5-11.

I tend to switch between f4 and f8 at 200mm, depending on the available light.

Thanks Graham and Shene. I'll give it a try.

(Shene, I read Bjørns and lots of others websites before buying! But I wanted other views too, although I already bought it).
