Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens... lacks sharpness at high end 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition! I got the NEX5N last month, and couldn't wait for this 55-210mm lens to come out. I just received it last week! I find to be a great addition to the 18-55mm that comes with the camera. It provides telescoping capability, and works so seamlessly with the camera's shooting and editing functions. The camera recognizes the shutter and aperture ranges for this lens, so functions like manual focus, priority continuous shooting, and panoramic shots still comes out well. Optical quality is what you'd expect from Sony. Although it expectedly adds head weight to the camera, it's amazingly compact for the comparable zoom. For the cost, I feel that this telephoto addition was a better buy than getting the 18-200mm combination option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I purchased this lens as a part of the A3000 bundle after reading the reviews here and in several sites. Over the holidays, I used the lens to take photos from Inspiration point on my NEX 7. Viewing them on my Mac, I was blown away. Images were extremely sharp, great color and the zoom was useful in capturing birds and the sunset. Considering the cost, this is a great purchase and I am very pleasantly surprised. It does need a lot of light and is not lightning fast to focus. But the photos were great throughout the zoom range. I would highly recommend this lens. It is a tremendous value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18-200 vs 55-210 The 55-210 is 6.4 ozs lighter and a more fitting lens for the nex where the 18-200 is heavy and 67 mm in size. the 67 size does let more light in and 18 is better for shooting indoors where subjects are close to the camera but remember you will need a flash extender for this lens or the bigger HVL-F20s. If you don't want to spend a lot of money the 55-210 is the lens for you, As for me I have two nex cameras the nex 3 and the nex 5N so I plan on owning them both. I will probably only use the 18-200 on the nex 3 and get this lens for the nex5n.the reasons are the 18-200 is huge and looks out of place on the 5n camera and so does the flash.that being said I love the 18-200 and the F20s for hiking there's not much time to change out lens and or flash plus the dust and rain would be a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Answer to question above I am by no means an expert on photography but the f indicates how much light is let in. The lower the value, the more focused the subject is and the blurrier the background is. So, a 1.0 is great for flowers or still objects but tougher for people. As for comparing the 18-200, I am going for this since I don't want that large of a lens. I feel like the 18-200 is for people who don't want to change lenses and don't mind using such a large lens ALL the time. For me, it was a non-starter. Sony also only says this supports the new cameras. I'm assuming this is a misprint since it should support any NEX mount camera. Anyone know anything different?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced Tele Zoom 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Telephoto Lens When I bought my alpha-6000 Sony Camera, I wanted a telephoto to extend my reach. After lugging around big DSLR telephotos for years, this one is a dream since it's light and small while delivering excellent pictures. I appreciate the vibration control since I'm older and not as steady as I used to be. Zooming is easy, and auto-focus is quick and accurate. It's wonderful that these mirrorless camera have accessories that allow so much of DSLR functionality.
