Wondering if my lens is bust or is this just part of the compromise of the 18-200vr. I compared images created at 18mm first by vr focusing at 18 and then by focusing at 200 and zooming back (while keeping the shutter half-depressed) to 18. The former were much sharper. This used to be a technique I would use on AF Zoom lenses. Wondering if this is just a design compromise of this lens or if it's bust...
