    Great introductory lens for the money! It's light enough to not be out of place on a camera as small and equally lightweight as an A6000, but not enough to feel precarious. Takes spectacular photos at maximum zoom!

    This lens is great for a little zoom to a lot of zoom. Very easy for me to change on and off of the Sony a6000. I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Zooms great. Pictures are extremely clear. Photos taken with this lens are far better quality than those taken with the lens that originally came with my Nex-3.

    I bought the sony alpha a6000 camera a few months before buying the lens and realized that the lens it came with did not have much of a zoom on it. I shopped around and found this lens and it is everything I need. I just wish it zoomed even farther and clearer and that its close ups panned out to fit everything in without having to switch the lens out.

    Overall this 55-210mm lens is great if shot in day. It does poorly in the night for auto focus quite slowly. Great for a daytime zoom for the price.

    Great Camera Lens

    This is a great camera lens for zooming in closer to subject. I use this lens to record church service and sit near the back of church and it zooms in close and objects/subject is clear and makes it a lot easier than using the standard lens. I compile this video onto a DVD for TV broadcast twice a month.

    Got this lens as part of the package deal with the Sony A6000 camera. It is very easy to swap on and off with the smaller lens that comes with the camera. It zooms in easily and takes great quality pictures.

    purchased this the same time as we purchased our new sony camera. natural fit as the lens that comes with the camera is limited. this gives the zoom needed to really capture what is happening without having to be on top of it.

    I don't use auto focus, so this is pretty great for me. It has the OSS which is reducing the hand shake and it is important when you zoom something far away. The quality is great too!

    The lense quality is top of line! If you buy the package you savea lot because the lens by itself is expensive but well worth it.

    This lens is amazing! I've never used a camera like this until buying my new Sony NEX and this lens can zoom in from so far away and still give you amazing quality pictures! Very fun to play with and worked out awesome for those trips to Disney where you want a picture of something that may be too far away for the typical zoom!

    Great zoom on this lens! Only bad thing is you have to switch it out with the original lens that came with the camera to get the closer pics but the ones we need are further away anyways so that is not a huge issue. This was a great buy for a great deal!

    I got this in a package bundle on black friday so it was relatively free. It is the primary lens I like to use with my sony a5000 compact mirrorless. The lens attachment system is super easy. The lens has a good zoom distance and takes great pictures and focus shots.
