Summary: It got delivered at the estimated date. As soon as I got it I attached it to my Sony A65, and it works great, I'm in love with it, great for portraits. I test the lens with my front neighbors, damn, the zoom is surprising. Im still a beginner but Its awesome for me. Works just fine. I have heard critics about how noisy it is when focusing, I personally have no problem about the noises. Just love my second lens in my starting collection.
Summary: I got this sony for my little girl for xmas, she is 16. She went crazy with it. It is easy to use and you can get very creative. High quality pictures down load to here computer that she sends to her friends. I thank this is the best gift I gave ever.
It was dirt cheap and gives me the longer focal lengths for video with my A99V

Summary: It was dirt cheap and gives me the longer focal lengths for video with my A99V but it is not quality--but I think I only paid $125 for it so it was still a good value. This is not a pro lens by any stretch but will get you a longer tele look without spending the bank.
We took and still taking many picture with this item.

Summary: I need this when we went on vacation and this item did it't job because I was able to take picture from a distance. I received the product when it was promise and in great condition for the price.
Summary: We had the smaller zoom that came with the camera and also had a 500mm fixed Reflector lens. The smaller lens just didn't have the pull to bring in nature shots and the 500 was too much--we got the moose head when we wanted the whole moose. This lens is just right. I've been real happy with my Sony photographic products in general, this is no exception.
Good for amateurs (like me). Not so good for professional use

Summary: The lens is good but when you use it in a very iluminated place at the maximun zoom you will see kind of purples dots that appears into the picture (like a little purple dots). For amateur use is ok. We received what we paid.
