Nice, affordable macro lens

  • Excerpt: I just received this macro lens for my a6000 and from what I've seen so far the macro images are great. I won't be using it as an all around lens, but think I'll be pleased with it for macro especially for the price.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Focus

A good sense, for a great price

  • Excerpt: The 30mm macro lens from Sony is an interesting lens, that takes a little bit of work to get the most out of. Overall it is very sharp but it it requires care and attention to detail when taking pictures because the depth of field can be quite narrow while at the same time very, very close to the...

Great lens with some quality accessories added

  • Summary: I really enjoy taking pictures of small objects and this lens excels at that. If you like taking pictures of flowers, food, insects or anything else at a close range this is definitely a required accessory.

Decent inexpensive macro

Shoestring Shooter, B&H Photo
14 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I have used this lens primarily for extreme closeups of fine art. It performs reasonably well. It's quite sharp in the center of the lens. The corners are a little soft. Best aperture is probably f8, maybe f11.
  • Pros: 11 Focusing, Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light

Fills a functionality hole for NEX-7

Adorama
28 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I was spoiled by my previous camera (a DSLR) because I was able to get a decent macro zoom that served almost all my needs. With the NEX-7, things were not so simple. The 55-210 has a minimum focus distance of 1 m! So in order to get close, I had to spring for yet another lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Manual Focus Often Needed

It could be better

W. Helton "Twinkerbell", Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: The lens arrived quickly, but without the hood. I contacted Amazon. First they suggested I return it. I did not want to return it, I just got it and want to use it, so they offered me a credit to pay for the purchase of a hood.

Nice lens for the money

RH Seattle, B&H Photo
19 December 2013
  • Excerpt: The choices for the Sony NEX mount in macro lenses are limited right now, but since I wasn't satisfied with close-up filters, I decided to go with this one. I would have liked a longer lens, but decided that since I'm not usually shooting moving insects, etcetera, I could live with this one.
