Sony DT 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Aspherical ED High Magnification Zoom Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera


Sony DT 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Aspherical ED High Magnification Zoom Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera



Specially designed for the APS-size CCD imager of the Sony α (alpha) DSLR camera, the SAL-18200 is the standard zoom lens that brings you closer to your subject. With superior all-in-one lens performance for everyday shooting, its 35mm-equivalent range of 27mm wide-angle to 300mm telephoto excels at capturing faraway subjects, sports events, dramatic landscapes and intimate close-up views.

FEATURES:

  • Internal focusing system – Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change — creating a lens that focuses more quickly and doesn’t change balance.
  • Aspherical lens elements -Three aspherical elements correct visual aberrations more effectively across the entire zoom range and help reduce weight.
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass -Two ED Glass lenses minimize flare and greatly reduce chromatic aberration, giving you sharp, clear shots even at full telephoto extension.
  • Circular aperture -Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

SUPPLIED ACCESSORIES:

  • Front and rear lens cap
  • SH0008 petal lens hood
  • DT lens design for optimum performance
  • Excellent wide-angle to long telephoto shots
  • Fast internal focusing with no change in lens length
  • 3 aspherical lens elements for wide-angle accuracy
  • 35mm equivalent: 27mm to 300mm

    Good range for all-in-one design, July 26, 2006
    This review is from: Sony DT 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Aspherical ED High Magnification Zoom Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera (Electronics)

    If you’re going with the Alpha 100, and looking for a good, all-in-one design, then look no further.

    Built specifically for digital, this is the Konica-Minolta 18-200 lens repackaged for the Sony, which included a bit of restyling. Optically, this is a solid performer. It’s not cutting edge technology, and won’t hold up to the rigors of professional photojournalism, but it’s small, lightweight, and give you a tremendous zoom range.

    Even with the Alpha’s anti-dust technology, it’s still best to keep the dust out in the first place. There’s no better way than to minimize the changing of lenses.

    For other options, look at the Tamron 18-200 for Maxxum mount (which Sony has adopted as the Alpha mount). Yes, the two lenses do look VERY similar! If you’re wanting more top-end range, look at the Tamron 28-300. This latter lens might be the best option if you’ve already picked up the Sony 18-70 with the kit.

    If you’re ordering it now, you won’t need the “kit” 18-70 zoom, but make sure the body only configuration is available.

    Within a whisker of a $2,000 Nikon lens – at the same apertures, November 18, 2007

    This review is from: Sony DT 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Aspherical ED High Magnification Zoom Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera (Electronics)

    I spent five hours yesterday comparing pictures from this lens (which I thought would be markedly inferior) on a Sony A100 with those from a friend’s Nikon D200 ($1,400 today) with a 70-200mm f2.8 lens ($2,000). I had decided to sell my setup and spend the money on the Nikon to get the additional sharpness I thought it had and was just doing the test to be sure. I’m glad I did because I got a surprise.

    We set up the cameras one after the other on the same tripod, in the same position, in the same lighting, shot the same object, both used spot focus, controlled ASA and aperture plus used automatic, shot at 70mm and 200mm and then compared 100% crops of pictures from both. Using 100% crops to compare is a severe test.

    A 100% crop is looking at a portion of an image displayed on a monitor when the picture is allowed to scroll way off the screen. That way, rather than looking at a 3872 x 2592 pixel image squeezed into perhaps a 5″x7″ print which would be VERY sharp, you’re looking at the image at whatever screen resolution is set for your computer monitor (to see your setting right click an empty portion of your desktop, then select Properties, Settings). Mine is set to 1024×768. That means I use the entire width of my monitor, which is 15.4″ diagonally and thus maybe 13″ across, to display 1024 pixels. So the above image would be displayed about 50″ wide or seven times magnification of that 5×7, a very high magnification.

    The upshot of all this is that most crops, flipping back and forth repeatedly from one to the other and trying to see differences in the fuzz of the weave of a pillow as photographed from across the room (no kidding), were virtually the same. I’m no professional, but I’ve been into amateur photography for 45 years or so and I’m telling you, that for all practical purposes these two lenses produce the same pictures… when taken at the same apertures and focal lengths (zooms). His lens will open up to f2.8 in its entire range, allowing him to take a picture without a flash when I could not since mine cannot open up as much, and not nearly as much at 200mm where I can only get f6.3. I don’t mind using a flash, but its limited aperture when zoomed is one of the things responsible for this lens’ relatively low price.

    Also, and I think this is important, there is a significant difference in how zoomed the lenses really are when each says it is zoomed to 200mm. By that I mean that in pictures of the same object taken at the same resolution and distance with both fully zoomed to 200mm, a throw pillow that filled his entire image side to side only filled 2/3 of mine. I conclude that this lens does not actually zoom to 200mm, but to something less I blame this lens for being deficient rather than the Nikon being better because I figure Nikon would brag about it if their lens zoomed to more than 200mm. That is a significant deficiency in my opinion and why I withheld one star. False advertising.

    FOR THE MONEY, and considering that I think camera lenses in general are hideously overpriced, I’d say this lens offers a remarkable value. You get one lens that you can leave on the camera at all times, never having to buy any other lenses or tote them in a big heavy bag or change them and maybe miss a picture, that’s very light and short compared to other lenses, and that produces pictures whose resolution is within a whisker of much more expensive lenses if you can accept its smaller maximum aperture. For four times the money I’ll use a flash if I can have all the above advantages.

    I’d say get one. The reviews that talk about this lens being a little soft (blurry) at all lengths are based on comparisons by professionals using a magnifying glass. I thought the differences would be significant to my rather critical eye, but they are not. I’m keeping mine.

    This review is from: Sony DT 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Aspherical ED High Magnification Zoom Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera (Electronics)

    As a professional landscape photographer who feels compelled to carry a wide variety of lenses, I found this lens has helped me lighten my carry on case. This is a versitile lens that provides fine steady quality under most landscape conditions. It replaces 3 lenses that I used to carry on my travels. The reproduction quality that I get from most enlargements from my new alpha 700 with this lens is top quality. As others note, I wish it had sturdier materials but if it gets banged up, it is reasonably inexpensive to replace. If you add a set of macro filters, it does a great macro job on flora. You will find that on most shoots, you will likely use this lens over 75% of the time. That helps keep the dust and dirt from getting on the sensor when you change more frequently as I used to do.
