Telephoto lens

W. Brad Wilson, Amazon

  • 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.

Qualified success.

  • 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.

Good value lens for amateurs. Should be complemented with another lens.

  • Summary: I haven't used it all that much yet, but from the get-go, these are my quick thoughts. A good lens for the price, it has a nice range, but since it's only an f/4.5-5.6, the aperture limits the times of day that you can take decent pictures. Namely, low light situations won't really cut it for this lens, IMHO, and it needs fairly good light conditions to really shine through (pun intended, hehe) and make nice pics.

User Review

  • Summary: This lens can get the job done. It is slower to focus and louder than the higher end lenses but for the money it gets the job done. Images need to be sharpened more than the higher end lenses as well. I would put this in the same category as the Olympus 70-300mm as kit lens quality.
  • Pros: Low price and nice images
  • Cons: Slow to focus, loud

Sony Zoom Lens

  • Summary: This is a fantastic lens for the sony alpha. This lens is a great addition to the standard lens that comes with the alpha, and will bring good detail to close up images. Keep in mind, this is an amature lens, and wont so super fine pixel defination, but will still produce fantastic shots at a great price.

Sony 75 to 300 mm Lens is a good addition

johnelk92, Ebay

  • Summary: After buying my Sony a330 I found I was always having to get closer to the subject than I wanted. Therefore, I decided to buy the 75-300 mm Telephoto lens. Other than extra batteries this is probably the best choice of additions for your Sony Alpha for most amatuer photographers. The very first picture I took (a portrait of my little dog) convinced me that this was a good purchase.

Just ok

  • Pros: It does what is suppose to do I can zoom in on my subjects without being right in their face. I've enjoyed the lens for doing senior pictures and bird shots.
  • Cons: It's a cheap lens compared to others out there and you get what you pay for. The auto focus sucks in my opinion but I knew that going into it so I wasn't real upset. My next purchase will be a Pentax K-7 with a wide angle lens as I do mostly nature photography

Sony SAL75300 - a beautiful lens

vjalle, Ebay
7 June 2009
  • Summary: This is one of the most beautiful lenses for the Minolta AF / Sony mount. I'm using it quite often, and sold a couple of them in Hungary. The optic is not very good. Old design, not digitally optimized. Almost no geometric distortions, but quite high chromatic aberration. 1.5m minimum focus distance - too far. However, I like it.
