A Sweet Tele,
This review is from: Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras (Silver) (Camera)
I had some apprehensions as to whether or not this lens would satisfy my sharpness desires. Whether or not I got a good copy all I can say is it is a superb little lens. I say little as I've been used to DSLR telephoto lenses and this is so much easier to cart around. It is considerably smaller in diameter and length but the build is solid as a rock reassuring milled aluminum and grippy rubber. Very precise and smooth extension as well. A great balance on a NEX-5N to be sure. Sharpness on my copy is very comparable to a Canon mid level lens but most thankfully sharpness is equally excellent across it's ENTIRE range even at 210mm which is rare in a tele. Usually they are compromised at the long end. The OSS is nothing short of stunning as I am a shaky shooter and it sure saves the day hand holding. I can't recommend this lens MORE highly. It is so nicely priced as well.
