Good, but delicate

Zorro, Amazon
16 July 2014
  • Summary: I had a reasonably good experience with this lens. It's light weight, the image is very sharp for a APS-C lens, and the zoom range is very convenient at a decent speed. However, after a 2 1/2 years of normal use, the lens became blurry and the action sticky.

No auto focus when used with Sony Nex!

Kimberly A. Traynor, Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: This is a great lens, and the zoom is amazing, but I did not realize when I bought it that the auto features would not work when using it with a converter for my Sony Nex camera. The good side of this is that it has forced me to learn more about the manual settings on my camera........

It was dirt cheap and gives me the longer focal lengths for video with my A99V

Patrick M. Racey, Amazon

  • 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.

Good for amateurs (like me). Not so good for professional use

Oscar Cespedes R, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • 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.

Solid performer

Hiram Grant, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: This repackaging of the Konica-Minolta 75-300 is a solid performer, at a reasonably good price. If you like to stay with the camera manufacturer's own products, then you'll not be disappointed. Packaging includes the front & rear caps; lens shade & 1 year warranty.

Average lens for an average price, Good as a starter lens

Kindle Customer, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: Nice starter lens to get long ranges but does not perform well in lower light, as it was not designed to. I got this with the ALpha 200 kit for an extra $100 and it was worth that for sure, but if you are spending $200 or more, I would go with a walkaround lens 28mm to 300mm, you'll use it more and...

Good lens.... at 70mm

  • Summary: A good lens at 70mm but has color fringing and chromatic aberration...getting worse as you zoom further. Ok for the price.

Hard to recommend compared to Tamron

Chilehead Craig, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: I got this lens as part of a kit for only $50. For that price, I can recommend it only if you have nothing else, but considering you can sell it and buy something better, that's the road I took. Images up to 200 mm were fairly sharp, but were not extremely saturated.

OK lens when you are not shooting in direct sunlight

S. Smith, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: I've been having an unexpected problem with a lot purple fringing with this lens. I live in Arizona where the sun is very intense. I plan on trying to shoot with a filter to see if that will solve the problem.

Sony Alpha 75-300mm F4.5-5.6 Lens - Disappointing

caisterken, Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: An average performance lens. Performance disappointing but will have to do until I can afford something better. 2.5 stars about right but you get what you pay for I suppose.
