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
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.
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
Excerpt: Perfect lens and easy to use ... totally exceeded my expectations ... low price and a smart choice if you do no want to spend too much... if you need something that does the job this is the perfect complement for your nex camera ...
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).
