Some of it comes down to how you are using the lens. The 18-200mm is a good lens at f/8. If you stay away from the edges of the performance envelope it is a good performer.

However, if you were to shoot both lenses at 200mm f/5.6, I would expect you to see a difference. Not necessarily a big difference but a difference.
