Great Little Lens

  • Excerpt: this is a great little lens: very sharp, excellent contrast and small considering the zoom range. Easily fits in your pocket. OSS is very effective and one can easily hand hold at 1/8 second on the short end and 1/20 on the long. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because of the plastic lens flange. I'm sure Sony will say that the plastic is stronger and more accurate than the metal but I still like metal. Call me old fashioned.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Surprised!

  • Excerpt: Many reviews mention this lens is soft at 210mm. I found this is not the case at all. In fact, my test shots are very sharp at all focal lengths. The Steady Shot feature on this lens works remarkably well.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Incredible Lens

  • Excerpt: Awesome image quality and flexibility, decent weight. It does add some length to your camera so it's a little tougher to take hiking but definitely worth it. Indoor portrait quality is outstanding.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Better than I thought it would be

  • Excerpt: I got this lens for $ over the holidays with the purchase of an a6000. I generally own/use very good glass, but I don't use long lenses that often and was hoping the 55-210mm would hold me over until I can afford to add a higher end tele-zoom. To my pleasant surprise my copy is quite a good lens and I won't be in any hurry to replace it. I've only tested it at f/8 on a tripod (because that is how I will use it).
  • Pros: Lightweight
