Great Little Lens

  • Excerpt: this is a great little lens: very sharp, excellent contrast and small considering the zoom range. Easily fits in your pocket. OSS is very effective and one can easily hand hold at 1/8 second on the short end and 1/20 on the long. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because of the plastic lens flange. I'm sure Sony will say that the plastic is stronger and more accurate than the metal but I still like metal. Call me old fashioned.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Surprised!

  • Excerpt: Many reviews mention this lens is soft at 210mm. I found this is not the case at all. In fact, my test shots are very sharp at all focal lengths. The Steady Shot feature on this lens works remarkably well.
  • Pros: Lightweight

If you know the limitations of the lens, you can get some excellent results.

  • Summary: Take it for what it is, this is a kit-quality telephoto zoom. It is slow, but reasonably long, compact, and has stabilization. If you can pick it up at $200 or less, it is absolutely worth it. Keep in mind that it is SOFT wide open at the the telephoto end. If you stop down to f8, you will have MUCH better results, but this of course limits you to shooting in relatively well lit conditions. Focuses quickly enough on nex-6 and very fast and accurately on the a6000.
