  • Summary: Greatly photo quality, but a bit stiff in turning the barrel for zooming. No lens creep however due to the stiffness. Focus is slower and sometimes unpredictable at the 180-200mm range.

  • Excerpt: I use this lens all the time as a shoot on opportunity lens. I initially had the focusing problems that others have described but whether it was the Sony NEX-7 upgrade or just the user and the camera getting it right it is now a fast focusing lens in all but very poor light.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: I Can't Think Of Any For

Good all purpose lense

8 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I got the lense so I had a good all range lense for when I am out with family and this lense did not dissapoint. The camera can take a little while to focus in low light scenarios but is very accurate in well lit scenarios, such as daylight.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Excellent Superzoom for EOS M

Jeff, B&H Photo
5 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I've only had the lens a week or so but am very impressed with the quality of the shots I am getting from it over its whole range 18mm-200mm. I originally wanted a 55mm-200mm but was disappointed in the Canon design (plastic bayonet mount, so so reviews) which is not available in the US anyway.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged

Better price is available on Amazon

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: I have an NEX-5N and -6 and am considering this lens. But only 4 stars here for the price. It seems the identical lens is available on Amazon for about 120 bucks less. (I'm on mobile and can't add a link, but search for this same item at 590 dollars. It ships from Japan.) Edit: I just ordered it.
