    I had opened the 18-200 up from memory to get the bench out of focus in front and behind my son. I normally get good results staying around F8, this is one of those times I didn't stick to F8 but like the results soft or not. He's very difficult to photograph anyway and to get a good surrounding was just precious.

    Just checked F4.5, ISO 500, very cloudy and a moving kid.

    I read some tests and it realy shows best sharpnes on F8. Sometimes even F5,6 is good.
    So in conclusion we can say that lens is not limited in zoom range, but in sharpnes depending on a aperture. You cant have everything...

    I personally notice the lack of contrast wide open the most but sharpness definately goes too below F7.1. The 18-200 IMHO is a decent and very convenient lens but I much prefer the sharpness and clarity of my 90mm or the colour rendition of my nifty 50. Particulary when trying to control DOF instead of shooting F8-F11.

    Here's the last day of my holiday.
    River Murray at Tooleybuck near sunset. Tweaked in NX for Rooz's benefit

    And
    Yes I posted a lot of river shots from the holiday.
    No I don't have a river fetish.
    It's just the road follows the river for around a 1,000 km.
