      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 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.

      I have left Sony Alpha land and have converted to E-Mount. So why am I keeping this lens you ask? Well, I'm not big into zoom where I require fast action tracking. With my new Sony a6500 and LA-EA1 adapter I am more than happy with stills image focus and image quality of this lens. FYI...Video AF sucks, but that is the nature of adapted lenses. As 99% of my videos are close up it's a non-issue for me.

      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.

      I know I would rather have the zeiss version of this lens but for the price this is totally functional and acceptable and crispy. Since I am using this camera to shoot film it would be better to have an FE mount so that the noise from the autofocus would not affect my work.

      My love for photography has been rekindled but the addition of this flash. My quality and flexibility has been enhanced. Right now, I get every opportunity I can get to show off because I know my lens won't let me down. I am a happy best buy customer.

      I have been using a 210mm on a 3000 e mount. This lense on the a mount camera a68 is amazing. I love how fast it focuses when zooming. I photograph a lot of airplanes and this is a winner. Great lense.
