Good price but filters don't fit lens

Francisco Alberini, Amazon
7 October 2014
  • Summary: This is a great price for this lens, but the lens filter kit was for a 40.5mm lens. The SEL55210 is a 49MM lens so the filters are basically a throw away.

  • Summary: BI suspect this will mostly protect the lens, so it's adequate. BUT it is not worth $15.50. This is a $5 lens bag? Nothing about it impresses.

Lens now works, but is soft

Jim S, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: ORIGINAL REVIEW: Do not buy this lens for a Sony NEX 6! In theory, it's just fine, and it worked fine when I received it, so I set it aside for an upcoming vacation. The first time I tried to use it in the field, though, the camera would not recognize the lens, would not focus, and would not shoot. Google the thread "sony nex 6 lens not recognized" and be warned. The lens is apparently made loose and the contacts don't connect well -- at least to the NEX 6.

Decent long telephoto.

Trotterjay, B&H Photo
14 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Sony doesn't offer, as of yet, a hi-end long e-mount telephoto for their nex system. Because I like the compactness and autofocus capabilities of native lenses I bought this. It did not give me the color pop or contrast of other lenses like Sony's 10-18 ultra wide zoom, Zeiss 24 prime or Sony 50,1.8. Autofocus is slow. Don't expect to use this for sports or wildlife unless the subject is stationary. However, the images are reasonable. I'll continue to use this lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
