Summary: Just getting into DSLR cameras and just love this camera. Issue was with the stock lens supplied, I in essence had no telephoto whatsoever. This 55mm - 200mm suits me just perfectly. Price was excellent, delivered promptly and in new perfect condition. I am not a pro, but we just camped out in the mountains. Took absolutely beautiful pictures. The 200mm got me close enough to an Elk like I was right next to him. Super!!!
Summary: The lens is pretty good, but it just wasn't as sharp as I wanted. Sure the price is right and you get what you pay for. It's very light and pretty small for 200mm zoom. Yeah, it will get the job done, just not what I ultimately wanted. I have already sold this lens, at a loss, to a friend who needed it for a trip and she's happy with it. So what did I replace it with?
Summary: The sony 55 - 200 mm lens is a great addition to my camera. It gives you the ability to grab high resolution shots at a distance, without making the camera so ungainy or heavy. Used it for my son's graduation. Since this lens permits the use of the autofocus feature, it was outstanding to use in both day and night settings. Can't really say anything bad at all, just take note that this lens is not for great distances or very close shots.
