I purchased this lens to be able to shoot really close portraits of people on my A200, the lens is perfect when the subject is not moving fast as the auto focus is really slow, this lens should have had a SAM or something, also what i liked about it is the distortion control on this lens, you almost won't feel it while shooting, colors are really rich comparing to the 18-70 kit lens came with my camera and sharpness as well and bokeh is really nice... Shooting in low light could be a real problem if you tried leaving the lens to do the auto focus job as it hunts like forever (use manual focus to avoid this)... and of course due to the long zoom range handheld photos with longer exposure time that is less than 1/100 sec. are not sharp... Overall, it's a great value for money, as you get a really well built lens, with a construction similar to lenses double the price of this one.. Colors, sharpness, bokeh and build quality are really great... Its perfect for Macro, close-up, portrait photography as long as light conditions are good... Recommended for amateurs, and photographers in a short of budget..

I've been using this lens for about 6 weeks now. I have found that it takes good pictures at focal lengths shorter than 200mm as long as there are not any sharp lines with high contrast (i.e. black to white). If there are any areas with sharp black to white contrast, there is severe chromatic aberation. Also, above 200 mm the pictures aren't quite as sharp - you can definitely tell that they were taken with a telephoto lens. Given the price of this lens, these defects in the picutre may be expected. They are not very noticeable in 4x6 prints, but if you blow-up a picture or print larger than 4x6, they become very noticeable.

Average lens

By DrBrown54

Comments about Sony Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black Finish:

I shoot outdoors 99% of the time for landscapes. This lens performs average in all aspects, but has a definite sharpness loss beyond 250mm and you get more CA on high contrast items. I guess this is normal for a cheap lens. I will likely upgrade to a faster lens as this does not perform very good in anything darker than mostly sunny conditions. Bokeh on close subjects is fair as well. Overall just too soft and too much grain for me even at 100 ISO. For videos in low light or indoors this is very poor and requires ISOs of 3200 minimum unless you have good light sources inside. I shoot with an A57 crop sensor if that helps anyone's decision making.

    Spectacular!

    Comments about Sony Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black Finish:

    This lens is really worth investing in if you're looking for a quality telephoto zoom, but don't have the cash to drop on a high-end lens.

    Value zoom lens

    By Mac44

    from Geneva, IL

    Comments about Sony Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black Finish:

    Over all this lens is a good value zoom lens. I'm very happy I have it, and I would recommend it to anyone who just needed a zoom lens for a few shots here and there, but not as their main lens. One thing that you should keep in mind if you are looking to buy this lens is how much will you use this lens at its maximum and minimum focal lengths, and what you will use it for. Also you're going to want a bit of light with this lens if you want to stop your subjects without blur.

    Great Lens for the Price!

    By Stronks

    from South Portland, ME

    Comments about Sony Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black Finish:

    This was the first lens I went and bought for my a330 (other than having the kit lens) and I am very pleased with it! It is quick and quite accurate when it's in auto. The only thing that really annoys me about this lens is that it slides, I really wish Sony put a lock on it. I take a lot of equine/canine images and I am always moving and having to walk a lot, so it gets really annoying having to recheck and make sure the lens isn't fully extended. Overall great lens for the price. I have since upgraded my camera body to a a65 and it works even better!

    The long zoom to buy for most Alpha owners

    By SKnabt

    from Richmond, VA

    Comments about Sony Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black Finish:

    I got this in a bundle with my a65 body. Even at full retail the lens is a reasonable value. The build is very solid but not too heavy. I've read reviews where color fringing is a problem but with firmware corrections turned on I haven't noticed this. I didn't expect to use this lens as much as the kit lens but find it's better built and funner to play with depth of field with. It's also surprisingly a much better 'macro' lens than the 18-55mm for taking pictures of flowers and such.

    75-300 lens

    By jrd99

    from rochester hills, mi

    Comments about Sony Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black Finish:

    This comment is not a review of the lens, rather it is a comment about previously posted cmments. I have debated quite a bit about this lens over the 55-200 and while i have not made up my mind yet, I will just say that the 75-300 is not an auto-focus lens.some of the folks comments are relating it as such, but it is a manual focus lens and not controlled by the electronics of the body.
