      To answer the first comment: You say you have the NEX-5 which should have come with the 18-55mm lens correct? If so then you should just go for this lens. 1) It is over $400 cheaper than the 18-200mm zoom lens and zooms further than that one by a bit. 2) Another reason why you should just go for this lens is because if your camera came with the 18-55 zoom lens, then this one, the 55-210mm lens, would basically pick up where the 18-55mm lens left off and go the extra distance you were looking for. I'd only recommend the 18-200mm lens if you didn't already have the 18-55mm lens....Does that make sense? Also, the f-stop that you see on the lens is the min and max aperture....That number is important especially when you're wanting to take pictures of sporting events and action shot. However, its only really important if you plan on manually adjusting the shutter speed. The higher you adjust the shutter speed the less light is let in. So when you adjust to shutter speed to the higher points, your pictures come out really dark so having a lens with a really high aperture, say 1.0 or 2.8, will allow you to open the aperture blades back up even though you have adjusted the shutter speed already, thus giving you the perfect shot. This camera already have a really high frames per second so getting that perfect actions shot be no problem even without adjusting the shutter speed to its fastest speed. I hope this helped! ;-)

      I love the idea of this lens but the reality is that the images are badly ghosted. I've experimented with both handheld and tripod shots and on a lovely day with good light there are bad ghosts at 70mm and at 210mm. I plan on taking it back to the store and trying another lens as I read other reviews and haven't seen this complaint so I may have a bad lens.

      Great glass.

      By Mikethomasad

      from Kansas City

      Comments about Sony 55-210mm Zoom Lens:

      The combination of features produce a one-of-a-kind experience, that a few years back would have not been affordable. Compact, efficient and powerful. The 50mm tells it with punched contrast and confident timing. Works perfectly with the NEX, where it was designed to come to life. You have the technical stuff here, so I'll just end with this, the image stabilization is worth the cost of the glass alone. 1.8 plus stabilization lets you do amazing work and reduces all kinds of effort. It's a great buy.

      Excellent lens

      By Anonymous

      from Japan

      Comments about Sony 55-210mm Zoom Lens:

      I got this lens for a couple of month, it came together with the NEX-F3Y kit, its pretty amazing with it superb quality of images. Particularly at low-light condition. The only problem is a little bit long in length, it might poses some discomfort while you are shooting photographs in a crowded area. But I guess probably I might get used to this as time goes by.

      Good lens... lacks sharpness at high end

      By AyanD

      from Eden Prairie, MN

      Comments about Sony 55-210mm Zoom Lens:

      This is a very good, compact lightweight lens for my Nex 5N. Also cozy feel and good looking. Great for outdoor/portrait. Nice stabilization too. At the dark side - this lens is not sharp wide open at the tele end. If you zoom more that 150mm or so then you have to step down the aperture and the image quality is so so. This is 210mm in APS-C so you can expect it to work as good as a 350mm full frame. But in reality it doesn't. If you plan to take nice bird or animal picture it is not the lens for you (probably nex series is not for you) but if you plan to take picture for normal outdoor or some long range portrait - its perfect.

        Well balanced Tele Zoom

        By Captmatt

        from Homer, AK

        Comments about Sony 55-210mm Zoom Lens:

        It is a nicely made and finished lens which works great on my Sony NEX 7. It is decent wide open, very sharp two stops down. The zoom mechanism is well placed and easy to move, the focus ring well placed as well. It also continues the use of 49mm filters which is great if you use a polarizer. I am pleased with the color, sharpness, contrast and bokeh of this lens. It fulfills it's intended purpose beautifully.
