Sony used apodization (APD) element or filter whatever you can say. The apodization (APD) element is being already used by Fuji and Canon and Now Sony is also adding in the lineup.

The elements helps to create more natural bokeh. It minimizes the harsh texture  when there are strong contrast in the out of focus part of the background. It’s actually a radial natural density filter that get more darker towards the edges causing the disc of light to fade towards the edges. And that actually helps every indivual disc to produce more smooth and creamy bokeh.

The 18-200mm E-mount lens is one of the most versatile lens I have ever seen, the lens covers the need of kit and zoom lens. Best to use in daylight condition to get perfect shots. The lens works very well with the Sony’s current Hybrid Sensor AF. However the lens do suffers from distortions however it can be corrected by software’s later on.

The other drawback of the lens that it doesn’t allow you to zoom manually, the Lens act as a compact camera lens and takes bit time while zooming-in and out.

Don’t spend your bucks until you really need this lens, if you are a hardcore daylight travel photographer than you should buy this lens, otherwise think twice before getting it.

The Good: Covers a wide range, keeps you free from changing lenses

The Bad: Distortions and price
