Solidly built and does what it is supposed to do,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras Silver (Camera)
Sorry this is not a jazzier review but as a total novice I don't really feel I can put this lens through its paces and give a great review. What I will say is as far as my limited knowledge on higher end photography this is a great lens. It is built extremely well in my eyes (I recently went out and took a look at some of the cheaper DSLRs thinking I may have made a poor choice with the NEX system but while handling these cameras and especially the cheap lenses I have decided it was the right move) and the few pics I've snapped look quite good to me. I bought the NEX-5N right when it came out and have been thrilled with the pics but was looking for more zoom. I started looking at getting some adapter and going with a different companies lens since the only tele from Sony at the time was the 18-200 for $800 bucks but was concerned about lack of auto-focus and possible damage due to the adapters not fitting well(something I have read more than once). Anyway I noticed the 55-210mm was coming out soon so that made me decide on this lens.
Sorry I can't be more articulate about pros and cons on this lens but i'm sure quite soon there will be plenty of those reviews to check out.

Thanks for the photo showing the comparison of the 18-55 with the 55-210.
