Product Details

Sony DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto Camera Lens - SAL552002

Close-ups look superb with this high-quality telephoto zoom lens. With its built-in motor and silky smooth operation, this is the ideal choice for shooting subjects that require some telephoto reach.

Features:

  • SteadyShot INSIDE™ In-Camera Image Stabilization A major reason for its compact, lightweight lens design is the benefit of SteadyShot INSIDE™ in-camera image stabilization, built into every® a (alpha) DSLR camera -- and enabling lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms.
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass To reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
  • Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) The built-in Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) eliminates the need to use a mechanical coupling system in the camera body to transfer auto foucs (AF) drive power and control signals to the lens. Instead, AF control signals from the camera body are sent to the lens-mounted SAM unit, which drives the focusing lens group directly, helping to assure smooth AF response.
  • DT Lens Design A more compact, lightweight lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in some Sony® a (alpha) DSLR cameras.
  • Circular Aperture Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

Good Lens

By 

from Bolivar, TN

Comments about Sony DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto Camera Lens:

This lens produces outstanding images with my A55 camera. However, zooming in and out is not very smooth. This should not be in a lens of otherwise high quality. Quality control slipped on this one.

Excellent Value

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto Camera Lens:

I bought this to replace/augment an older minolta 100-300mm lens that was pretty soft. This has become my primary lens since I shoot mainly outdoors. I love that it's fast with the AF and produces nice crisp photos with good color. I rarely experience the AF "hunting" like some lenses do in lower light. There are times I wish I had a bit more reach with it, and when wanting to zoom in close I'm often unable to get as tight as I want since you have to be at least 3.5ft from your subject. Those are minor nits considering the capabilities and price of this lens. For the price, I couldn't be happier with this lens.

GREAT LENS.

By

Comments about Sony DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto Camera Lens:

Lens has great quality and versitility of zoom for open field shots and just about anything else. The autofocus is very quiet and therefore great for wildlife. You can't get a better lens for even twice the price. (The pics look much better than here.)

I love this lens

By 

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Sony DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto Camera Lens:

I received this lens with my new a55 as an early Christmas gift and I absolutely love it. I am an amateur photographer and I have a lot to learn, and so far, I feel like this is the perfect lens for me to learn with. I have been able to take a wide range of photos with this lens; including portraits, landscapes, flowers, action shots, and even food. Although you have to be rather far from a subject to get a good shot, and it doesn't always focus as quickly as I want it to (which is only sometimes frustrating when I'm taking pictures of my step kids who are constantly on the go) I would say this is a perfect lens for any beginner or a good day to day lens for anyone. Also, the photo quality on this site do not do these photo's justice because they actually came out to be much more vivid and pristine.

Lens hood does not lock into place

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto Camera Lens:

It's a shame that the enjoyment of using the lens is interrupted every half hour when the lens hood falls off into the dirt. The provided lens hood doesn't lock into place, so simply walking around holding the camera is enough to loosen the lens hood until (surprisingly soon, and surprisingly often) it falls off the lens. So far I haven't figured out how to work-around this problem - because the front lens element turns when focusing, simply taping the lens hood onto the lens won't work. (Similarly, it's a little annoying that no lens-cap-strap is provided to attach the lens-cap to the body of the camera. A lens-cap-strap was provided with the simple DSC-H9 camera - why not with this kit zoom lens?).

Nice all around lense

By 

from Clearwater, FL

Pros

  • Ease of use / Versatility

Cons

  • Always wanting that little bit more range....

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Telephoto Camera Lens:

    Overall this is a great lense. I am just getting into the hobby and am very surprised of the photos I have been able to take with this lense. My father is a die hard Nikon person and he is impressed with the quality of photos I am producing with the 200mm on my A-330. For the price, buy it. You will not be upset. The included photos do not do it justice. They are actually much clearer and do not have the grainy fuzz you see here.
