    Disappointed in the life of this Sony 55-210mm e mount lens product, it failed and broke inside, making a loud clacking noise that would not stop until I turned the camera off, sounded like a gear problem for the autofocus components. It was an inexpensive lens realtive to the cost of the others available but I expected better from Sony Brand products.

    I use this for my children's soccer games. It's gets me closer to the action with some trade-offs. When fully zoomed, shots are often noisy unless on a very bright day. I'm still learning how to use the a6000 and this lens to get the very best shot possible. All in all, it's a lens that help you capture those priceless moments. For me, those are sports-related.

    This lens is no frills (but OSS) and gets the job done very well. Given the size and price, this lens is excellent. Great for during the day as the focal/aperture range is perfect. Depending on your camera, late in the day shots can get a bit noisy but again realizing the limitations with the lens will help you greatly. Oh yeah, great video lens too! Its about the size of a small red bull can. Its much lighter and easier to handle than the 18-200mm monster. For the same price as that lens (899), I have 2 excellent lenses. I have this on my NEX-6 complementing the 35mm F1.8. These are the only 2 lenses I need for 100% of situations.
