No matter how excellent the lighting is

  • Summary: No matter how excellent the lighting is, this lense seems to makes my photos more blurry or pixelated than other lensrs, even when it's not at all zoomed in.

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

Andrew Martin, Amazon
25 March 2015
  • 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.

fair low end lens for someone stepping up from traditional point and shoot cameras.

Digitalmaster, Amazon
21 October 2014
  • Summary: Overall, I was unimpressed with this lens. I recently tried out a Sony camera, and took several pictures, and the pictures from this lens seem to be washed out and blurry. That being said, I can't necessarily blame it on the lens, but it seemed to happen most when I used this lens.

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.

Meets a need but not much wow-factor

Ben C, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • Summary: Whilst it's good to have a telephoto lens in the NEX range, I haven't been wowed by the quality of the shots from this lens, as compared to the 18-55mm kit lens or the 50mm prime lens that I also have. There is a lack of detail and texture that is certainly noticeable.

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...
