Excellent second lens
Posted by: HWorld from: Kettering, OH on
I purchased this with the Sony-Alpha SLTA57K 16.1-Megapixel DSLR. The camera came with a 18-55mm lens, but this lens is an absolute must if you are taking any pictures other than close up. My children play soccer and basketball and I am able to get great pictures of them without blurring (which is why we went with a DSLR camera). I have even taken it to Columbus Crew Stadium with excellent results. You almost don't need your 18-55mm lens with this one, it covers that wide of a range.

Awesome outta the box :)

I do like the bulk of this lense. It just feels like a good quality piece. The LOCK feature is handy, makes it much easier to take on and off and for putting on the hood as well. The larger lens (62mm lens) is great, I do love it, I just wish it was the same size(mm) as my other 18-55mm and my 55-200mm which are 55mm lenses. I use a tethered strap with a lens cap attached to the camera and it doesn't fit on this one :( (small potatoes though) This is a replacement for my 75-300mm lens that just stopped AUTO focusing!!!! This lens has a $100 greater value and Best Buy swapped it out for me, even up!! That was very nice of them, due to the unavailability of the Sony Sal 75-300 for purchase anymore.

I loved this Lens. One of the main reasons. I bought a DSLR is because my fiancée and I love taking trips and our camera phones just do not do the sites Justice. We were always so far away and digital zoom was terrible. This Lens made those problems of the past we get great shots from Miles away.

Great lens for a non prime
Posted by: vbravo from: Northfield, Mn on
My picture quality is great even on the pictures where I zoomed in at 300mm. Im impressed for this not being a prime lens.

Great lens. I bought the Sony alpha 65 package so the lens came with it. It is a great lens and now I don't have to buy another one.
