    Will this lense be good for indoor volleyball?   (2 Answers)

    I'm thinking of pairing this lens with an a6000. Will I be able to stop the action and reduce blurs at the a6000s 11 fps rate? Is the f rating good enough to stop the ball in mid-air with no blurring?

      Answer

      If you keep the shutter speed above 1/250th you should be fine, but you will certainly need good light.

      Answer

      The Sony SEL55210 Lens is compatible with the Sony NEX series Cameras. It has 3.8x Zoom with consistently outstanding optical performance all the way. The built-in Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilization is a huge advantage when shooting at longer focal lengths or in low light, making it easy to capture crisp, stable images at up to four shutter speeds lower than would normally be possible. It provides a wide focal range of up to 315mm (35mm equivalent) ideal for sports or nature shooting and is equipped with two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements helps suppress chromatic aberration and color bleeding at all focal lengths providing excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. The 55-210 specification indicates the focal length of the Lens.
