My favoured E-mount lens thus far.

  • Excerpt: I got into the Sony Nex system recently when I acquired an A3000 camera body and two lenses, the 18-55mm kit lens and this excellent 55-210mm tele zoom lens. Between them, this one has better optics, better resolving power, better bokeh, and to my mind, better handling also. The longer barrel (about the size of a 12oz soda can) makes it easy to keep the camera nice and stable while shooting, especially with the OSS built in.
  • Pros: Image Quality, Image Stabilization
  • Cons: Weight

  • Excerpt: I plan on using this lens in Costa Rica. It's light and will compliment the Sony 10-18 mm I already own.

Does the job for me!

  • Excerpt: This ain't gonna be your Canon L-Series or anything like that, but I got it for $ when I purchased a Sony A3000 with it. I use it for Wedding Videography on my backup camera. Needed something with a zoom. Works great, especially outdoors where I have enough light. Can get a little dark on inside shoots where I have to bump the GAIN up to high. Basically this is my coverage lens. Then I use my Rokinon Cine Lens Primes to get all the "Beauty" shots.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Light Weight Skinny, Looks great
  • Cons: Not good in low light, Not The Greatest Glass

  • Excerpt: I fish out of kayak. I take this lens along. It images are sharp! For the cost this is a no-brainer. I know the G series would be better, but right now I'm fund limited.

Much sharper than many might assume!

  • Excerpt: A very sharp lens for the price. It is certainly "better" than what many might assume it is, based on its price and almost "kit lens" status!The OSS works well too, and I am getting decent bokeh out of it. It does not have the micro-contrast of my Zeiss lenses, but none of them have anywhere near the reach/focal length anyway, and are for very different purposes.The lens cannot be beaten for the function and price, on a NEX camera.

Not Super Impressed

  • Excerpt: The optical quality of this lens is disappointing. It is light, well made, and I like the range. But I'm getting very soft images across the range. Not sure if it is defective and I need to return it or this is really what I should be expecting. If it is, I am very unimpressed.
  • Pros: Range, Weight
  • Cons: Sharpness

  • Excerpt: Lens takes great pictures, is light weight, and seems durable. Great addition to my Nex 7. The zoom on it is incredible and goes pretty far. Images are crisp and detailed.
