Summary: This product was bought as a gift. It arrived in a timely manner and was as described. I took some test shots with my camera and Sony's quality lens performed on par with what was expected. For the value paid, it does not compare to other lenses compatible for the Sony alpha series of cameras.
This is the lens that every camera should have coming out from store!

Summary: With a ratio of 11.1x [27-300 in 35mm film], outstanding everyday quality, lite enough to carry around, and very affordable for most of us, this is your choice if you’re about to replace your everyday lens, or want an "only one lens option". You may open wide or get close enough on most situations. The ADI function works great when using with flash, especially with external units, well balanced pictures and colors.
Summary: I am a Zoom Lens kinda guy. I love being able to take normal pics, as well as have a good amount of zoom in one lens, and this does the job PERFECTLY!!! With my A300 and this lens, I don't think I need anything else for the next 2-5 years. I love this camera dearly and the lens is like a match made in heaven. Super crisp images. If you are looking at, BUY IT!
