Sharp and versatile

  • Excerpt: Excellent value for money, can hunt for focus at times but pictures are sharp and over 85% are keepers. Took this on safari in South Africa and was extremely happy with the results. Cannot warrant paying 5 times or more for faster glass when I use it mostly outdoors.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Good for reach on the cheap

  • Summary: Inexpensive telephoto that takes fairly good photos. I bought it to take on a trip because it is lightweight. Not as fast or as sharp as my Sony 70-400 but much lighter and less expensive.

Solid performer, great value.

  • Summary: On the A58 the pictures are clear and sharp. I've been using mine mainly for outdoor sports, something that was specifically said to be something this lens isn't suited to in professional reviews. In my experience, it's a great lens for that purpose.

Good optics, decent price Tele-zoom lens

  • Summary: I'd been wanting to try this lens for a while as I have quite a decent range of A Mount lenses (around a dozen or so) One area I don't really have well covered is the telephoto end and at the 300mm mark.
