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...

Sharp Images - Great Reach

Forget AF Past 200mm

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

Bulkier than I thought.


This was bulkier than I thought it would be so I took it back and got the 210.
