Thanks for the review. Because of the price and reach of the lens, I have always been interested in this lens as a possible alternative to the Nikkon 18-200 mm lens. I downloaded pictures of the chinese restaurant and movie theater and ran them through Adobe Elements 9 auto sharpening tool and was surprised as to how sharp the pictures were with a simple click. I would say that this lens is a serious alternative to the Nikon 18-200 mm lens.

Just my three pence worth.
I did the same thing out of curiosity but imho the sharpening required caused the outline effect (post sharpening giveaway).Whereas I can acheive a much better sharpness with the same post sharpening on my Nikor 18-200mm without the outline effect.
So the review is spot on. Like all these things you do need to look at the image at a reasonable size to see these effects.
I enter competitions A4 size and the judges jump on post sharpening give away outlines like a ton of bricks.
