5.0 out of 5 stars Superb "walk around" lens, March 10, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony SAL18250 Alpha DT 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 High Magnification Zoom Lens (Electronics)
I purchased this lens in July. It's rarely been off of my A700 since then. It covers such an incredible range for the shooting I do-mostly landscape and nature photos. I've already taken over 3500 shots with it. I have no problems with the focus speed. I haven't used my 18-70 or 75-300 kit lenses for more than 10 shots since I purchased this lens...there's no reason to.

If you're considering this lens, I recommend it. You won't regret it.

Update, 31 JUL 12: I've had this lens for more than four years now...it's still my favorite. I'm using it on my A65 now. Still have my A700, but I don't use it as much.

The lens has been on my cameras for more than 30,000 photos...my next most used lens is a 500mm mirror that has about 300 shots. I think that you can tell I like this lens. A couple of friends have taken a look through the lens and were extremely impressed...and I agree with them.

You won't go wrong with this lens.
