Excellent lens


I got this lens for a couple of month, it came together with the NEX-F3Y kit, its pretty amazing with it superb quality of images. Particularly at low-light condition. The only problem is a little bit long in length, it might poses some discomfort...

Good lens... lacks sharpness at high end


This is a very good, compact lightweight lens for my Nex 5N. Also cozy feel and good looking. Great for outdoor/portrait. Nice stabilization too. At the dark side - this lens is not sharp wide open at the tele end. If you zoom more that 150mm or so...

Exceeded Expectations


This lens is extremely well designed, high quality and most importantly is capable of helping you take sharp, clear, full size digital SLR quality shots. It is far better than the stock lens that comes with the NEX5N camera. Highly recommended.

Crisp Shots

Sharp, Light, Well Made, Stabilized

Not weather resistant (?)

Great addition!


I got the NEX5N last month, and couldn't wait for this 55-210mm lens to come out. I just received it last week! I find to be a great addition to the 18-55mm that comes with the camera. It provides telescoping capability, and works so seamlessly with...

18-200 vs 55-210


The 55-210 is 6.4 ozs lighter and a more fitting lens for the nex where the 18-200 is heavy and 67 mm in size. the 67 size does let more light in and 18 is better for shooting indoors where subjects are close to the camera but remember you will need a...

lighter lens
