Great deal.

 

Sincerely I prefer use it on manual, is not that difficult and focus what I really want it. Try to buy a 18-250 and the price escalate too much.

DT 55-300mm F4.5-5.6 SAM Zoom Lens

 

I would not recommend this to a 'beginner' .. however a Photog on a budget would find it useful and satisfying. ..Cons: 1. Front lens turns while focusing, not useful for filters. 2. Hunts a LOT particularly in low light. 3. No 'instant tuning' .. Easy...

excellent lens very quiet

 

I purchased this lens to replace a faulty zoom lens item. the lens has the quality feel of a sony product. its easy to use, has a great zoom range and produces some outstanding photo's. the lens is quick to focus and quiet whilst it does so.

Good value deal

 

I bought this as a bundle deal with an A65 SLT so the price was an absolute bargain. The lens is very sharp and pretty light for the focal length. It would be better if the lens did not rotate when focusing but I understand this is the price you pay...

Big fan

 

Excellent image quality, which is the most important to me - great sharpness. I haven't experienced any frustration with the autofocus, though I can see it isn't the quickest. Overall, I'm very pleased with this lens and for the price, would heartily...

Good Lens But Not GREAT

 

First I am hardly an expert right now but more a "prosumer" this lens for the price is a great deal. The pictures are sharp and clear and the 55-300mm gives great options with 1 lens. My only complaint is the "hunting" when using AF in anything past...

I love this lens

 

This is a great lens for outdoors. I'm not a professional but the image quality is clearly superior to my 18-55 lens that came with my A35. This lens is very fast and a great tool for capturing wild life. I took this photo with my A35 using this lens

Fast, sharp image
