Summary: This lens does exactly what you would expect from it. I love it. I noticed that the quality of the pictures didn't get lost at all. The only problem that I found was that it was difficult to get a sharp image when I used the maximum (or close) zoom, but I developed my own technique to overcome this...
Decent lens for the price of $150 with A77. Not sure I would pay over $200 for it though.

Summary: Really 3-4 stars, but gave it 4. Pictures are not as clear as I would like throughout all zoom ranges, but this wasn't an expensive lens. Hey, about $150 with the camera (Sony A77) so can't complain at all.
Summary: It fit my camera perfectly. The resolution is awesome. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it is still very new, and I haven't had a lot of experience with it. I am looking forward to perfecting my skills with it and using the filters that accompany it.
Summary: I bought this lens to go with my first Sony Alpha,the A350. It is good until you you start shooting into light. Then you get into purple fringing problems. As a general purpose zoom lens, you can't go wrong for the price.
Summary: This lens is a full-frame lens, it works on any Sony-Alpha A-mount camera. It does have 8 pins for ADI-compatible flashes. If you do some research about this lens, you will see that this lens is identically the same as Konica Minolta AF Zoom 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SLR Lens Maxxum SLR Cameras .
Summary: I have use this lens for about 3 months now to take many pictures with my Sony A-77 and A-57 landscape and nature. For a economical priced lens this lens takes great pictures. I highly recommend it for those of us who cannot afford the big bucks or need something for you to use until you do get a...
Summary: The lens works well and produces very good pictures for a casual user such as myself. I found it odd that the camera cannot use auto-focus with the lens extended beyond an estimated 260mm. I do not know if the issue is with the camera or with the lens.
