Good compact & lightweight lens with a very usable focal length.

Summary: A nice, lightweight and compact lens, with the perfect focal length for when you need that extra reach. Performs well for both stills and video, although it is no so silent. As with most Sony lenses, it produces good, sharp images, with great contrast and vibrant colors. Focuses fairly fast. Even though it is an all plastic body, it feels sturdy in the hands and on the camera due to its excellent build quality. A good thing is that it has a metal mount.
All around a great lens, especially for the value!

Summary: I simply love this lens. I am a hobby photographer so if you want a professional review then you may want to read a more experienced user's review. This lens captures great pictures even zoomed to 300mm. It's speed is nice too for outdoor shooting. If in a well lit area there is no need for an aperture of less 4.5-5.6. The auto-focus impressed me with it's quickness to adjust.
Summary: The 75-300MM lens is a great value lens and it will easily satisfy the budget minded hobbyist or professional as well. This lens takes great photographs and it's zoom capabilities makes it one of my favorites. The only issue is the dust that easily collects on its rubber surfaces otherwise you cant beat this entry level piece of glass.
Summary: I bought this lens for our Sony SLT-A55 to get close ups at my kids sporting events and it is working great. It is a good value for the price. Everyone on the team thinks the photos are awesome. I was concerned about the speed of the focusing and noise of the motor but it I haven't had any problems with either. In video mode, I haven't noticed the focusing motor noise (there are too many cheering parents).
Summary: I bought this lens, along with the proper adapter, to use with my Sony Nex-3 camera. Although when using this lens with the Nex cameras it is manual focus only, I love the range the lens offers. It is obviously more of an outdoor lens, but it allows you to get closer to subjects or objects you just cannot easily access. It is an addition to my camera bag!
