  • Summary: I have been trying to clean the glass and there seems to be some irregularities with it. I get a lot of circles on a photo and I am disappointed with it.

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: I love nature photography and this lens is a wonderful addition to my kit. The SSM technology is really great. I have the Sony a77ii with APS-C sensor, so I have a little longer reach when I am fully zoomed in to my subject. It's fantastic in good lighting conditions, but you do suffer from graininess when the light is not so good. After all, it is 4.5/5.6 aperture, but other than that it is a great lens for the price. It's light too.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

  • Excerpt: Had to return due to a peace being loose. But I did get to take a couple pictures with it & they looked great. A little soft at full zoom & was a bit heaver them my Tamron 18-270. But over all could be a bit better for the price.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction

Great lens... before it failed.

  • Excerpt: For the first two years of use, this was a great lens. Then, on vacation, or simply decided to stop autofocusing past about 20 feet. Other lenses work fine on my body do I know it's the lens. This is totally unacceptable for a lens with no scratches or damage. Never been dropped or banged around and get it just stopped working.Once, when trying to diagnose by swapping lenses, I got lots of motor squealing and other weird noises when planning this lens back on the...

fun to stand back . and see up close

  • Excerpt: it is fast to focus . im impressed with focus speed .in the day time. it dose not bounce around looking for focus. in low light it will hunt a little. when zoomed in on a spider and its web.but it will focus sharp on it with out tripod . it is not a low light lens . how ever if it is your only lens .doing a low light your iso will be extra high. and a slow shutter speed .best to use tripod in this case .back in the day time. your going to be very happy.
