Summary: I use this lens for outdoor activities (soccer and track and field mostly). I love the reach for the price. I'm definitely not a pro bit it works for me. Was trickier during the indoor seasons but still my best option.
Summary: Nice little lens on my a3000. Much better honestly than the kit 18-55 included with my camera. Yes, it did focus slower than the smaller lens, but the results are great! I am finding it much better to my eyes than the images with the smaller glass.
Summary: I had mild hesitation buying an OEM unit rather than one fresh in the box. I can confirm that this unit was pristine and was definitely new. The other reviews do a great job of covering the effectiveness of this lens.
Zoom in on this great lens! Get it...zoom...it's a pun....oh nevermind!

Summary: Great sturdy lens with a good zoom ratio. I love using this lens for getting those great DOF shots...crisp subject blurry backgrounds. I love it! Plus, using this with extension tubes makes for decent macro photography!
