Great lens for the price

 

Got this lens recently and I must say I love the results. Zooms in nicely, focuses pretty smooth, captures great colors. Couldn't be happier.

Takes nice sharp pics even at the full zoom

Excellent Value

 

I bought this to replace/augment an older minolta 100-300mm lens that was pretty soft. This has become my primary lens since I shoot mainly outdoors. I love that it's fast with the AF and produces nice crisp photos with good color. I rarely experience...

Richer more vibrant color than kit lens, sharp, nice bokeh

Dark areas of images can be a bit noisy, minimum distance

GREAT LENS.

 

Lens has great quality and versitility of zoom for open field shots and just about anything else. The autofocus is very quiet and therefore great for wildlife. You can't get a better lens for even twice the price. (The pics look much better than here.)

Silent autofocus

Great Purchase and Great Lens!

 

This is a great portable telephoto lens. The image quality is pretty solid; especially considering its pricepoint. It's a very reliable lens, there aren't very many cons. The optics aren't bad either, light fall off isn't too bad, bokeh isn't bad, and...

I love this lens

 

I received this lens with my new a55 as an early Christmas gift and I absolutely love it. I am an amateur photographer and I have a lot to learn, and so far, I feel like this is the perfect lens for me to learn with. I have been able to take a wide...

Lightweight, good zoom, nice depth of field

Minimum focus distance of 3.5 feet

Lens hood does not lock into place

 

It's a shame that the enjoyment of using the lens is interrupted every half hour when the lens hood falls off into the dirt.

Provided lens hood keeps falling off

Nice all around lense

 

Overall this is a great lense. I am just getting into the hobby and am very surprised of the photos I have been able to take with this lense. My father is a die hard Nikon person and he is impressed with the quality of photos I am producing with the...

Ease of use / Versatility

Always wanting that little bit more range

Love it!

 

I think it is a good purchase for the price. Get it while it is on sale!

Good quality. Can be used for wide range of shots

It is a bit hard to move the camera lens to 55mm. Slow and somewhat noisy focus scares away shy animals
