Summary: I bought this lens for my father, who uses an A37 Sony Camera (A-mount). He is satisfied with its performance. He was using the default 18-55mm lens before I got him the reviewed item, and he has seen a difference when taking photos with this lens.
Summary: This lens is light, sharp, easy to use. Covers a very usable range from 55mm to 200mm. This is the range that I most often use. Colors are great. The filter size is 55mm which enables me to save some money and use the same filters for this lens as well as the kit 18-55mm lens. Couldn't be happier.
