Summary: I wanted a lens that would allow me to shot pictures of the birds and other animals in my backyard. This lens allows me to sit on the patio and get those pictures much closer. It's a Sony lens so it just right for my Sony a58 camera body. Filters are easy to obtain for the 55mm ring. It is SAM so auto focus and the electronics are all in place Price was good. Shipping was fast. Communications were great. Just a good deal all the way around.
Wolf Camera partnership with Amazon worked awesomely!

Summary: As an avid amateur photographer with a limited budget, I was willing to invest a modest sum of money for a Zoom/Telephoto Lens for my Sony Alpha SLT Camera. Wolf Camera had a "used" Sony 50/200mm zoom lens available for half the price of a new lens. So I opted to purchase the lens. It arrived in a new box with all the parts included, and looked brand new, never touched, let alone used. The lens has produced wonderful results at all levels of zoom used.
Summary: I say this is a surprising good lens because I have never been a great fan of plastic lens mounts. But after purchasing the Sony SAM 35mm F2.8 with a plastic mount and owning two kit lenses, Sony 18-55mm and 18-70mm, I should not be surprised by the quality of this one. Still, I am. The lens is well balanced, with smooth quiet focus. It allows for a good, clear image. The best part for me; I purchased it with a great discount from Amazon Warehouse Deals.
Summary: This ia a great telephoto lens for the price and it works flawlessly with my Sony Alpha's focus and metering systems. Very compact. so it's easy to store in my camera bag. Although the write-up doesn't say so, mine came with a very nice hard lens shape.
One of the best purchases I've ever made, well worth the money!

Summary: This is an ideal zoom lens and I really enjoy working with it. It does a great job with outstanding results. If you want to get some nice long range shots, you will enjoy this addition to your photo equipment.
