  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to complement my sony 16-50 mm. Although this lens has a much lower price, I'm really satisfied with the results it produces. I also find the build quality satisfying.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Good quality lens for mid range shots

Photoman, B&H Photo
26 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a good "kit" lens for medium range. Seems a little slow to focus, but the focus is good. I bought it with a Sony SLT77. I like the ability to go from portrait distance to 30 or 40 feet away and have my subject well framed. You don't get a prime lens for the price this sells for (mine was $[*]0 with the purchase of the camera.) but it is good zoom for many occasions.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Great Deal

  • 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.

Excellent lens!

Barbara K. Powers, Amazon

  • Summary: I have another brand of lens like this one, but the Sony has proven to provide higher quality photos. I use this with my Sony A65 camera, and I enjoy taking landscape and wildlife pictures. I sometimes have to crop to some degree and am having the photos enlarged for framing. Compared to the other lens, these photos are sharper and the color is more true to life. I highly recommend this lens.

Wolf Camera partnership with Amazon worked awesomely!

Al Fichera, Amazon
2 March 2014
  • 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: Good affordable zoom lens! My seller was great too getting it just in time for Christmas. We could use the camera to zoom in on our daughter when she's far away.

Surprisingly good lens-outstanding value.

Derrick, Amazon
12 February 2014
  • 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.

Great Lens, Good Price

Badog, Amazon

  • 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.
