preferred choice over the 18-200,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras (Silver) (Camera)
I tried the 18-200 lens from Sony for the NEX. It's a good lens, quick, but it has a major drawback: too heavy.
So I ordered this one 55-210, and I'm pretty happy with my choice.
It's light, well balanced, and you can use the camera without holding the lens.
And furthermore, it's the same diameter (49mm) as the 16f2.8 and the 18-55, so it's compatible with my polarized filter (opposite to the 18-200).
Obviously the AF is not quick at 210mm, which may be bothersome for movie shooting, but it's still fully acceptable for me.
Good choice, good value for money, I'm a happy customer.
