Summary: The lens came as described. It is a good lens that does what it says that it will do. It is a budget zoom lens and if you treat it as such and not expect more than it's capabilities it will serve you well. I am an amatuer just playing around as a hobby with a small budget for my toys so this is fine for my needs. If you understand you camera and know how to use it you can get great results from it. Oh btw I use it on an A57.

Summary: i bought this lens for my sony alpha 58 and it fits perfectly, i am fascinated how perfect it works and because i am a rooky using my camera i still have to find out what all i can do, but would recommend this lens for a beginner like me
Summary: This lens works great as a 55 - 200mm lens. It is better than the kit lens, but don't make the mistake we did and hope that you won't need broader angles than 55 mm. After out 18 - 250 lens quit we thought that perhaps we could get away with just the 55 - 200 for a bit, but that is not the case. We ended up going back to a 18 - 250 lens for the versatility.
Excerpt: I got this to go with my a330. It's very responsive to focus and takes great pictures. It wasn't expensive at all, but performs like it was twice the price.We take photos at a nearby lake, and this lens is great for both close up and distance. And it doesn't feel cheap at all.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I use the lens on my Mirrorless cameras and it works great with no problems.One of the greatest things about the lens is its small size which makes my hand held shots eaiser to take.I can't find any fault with the lens given how I use it.
