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.
Summary: I purchased this lens on the strength of reviews I have read on various websites, and I was not disappointed. For a lens at this price the quality of the optics is superb. The SAM focus motor is smooth and quiet and the lens is quite compact.
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.
Summary: I have had the lens, which I use with the Sony A65, for about three weeks, and was immediately impressed with its light weight, and quality construction. I have tested it with close up images and surprised with the clarity of the pictures.
