Sony's SEL55210 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 Lens brings the world to owners of APS-C E-Series cameras in a long telephoto zoom lens. The equivalent of 82-315 mm in full-frame or 35 mm format, this lens has a versatile short-to-long telephoto range. The wide range is great for bringing your subject closer to you, no matter how far away it is. Internal focusing gives you smooth, responsive autofocus, with minimum noise--perfect for capturing video.

With a telephoto lens, image stabilization is very important to prevent camera shake--Optical SteadyShot gives you the ability to capture sharp, crisp images (still or video) even in low light or when zooming into distant subjects. Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements help to suppress chromatic aberration bleeding at all focal lengths, so you have excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. This is a lens that you'll want to keep handy at all times for dramatic long-range images.

  • Versatile telephoto lens with 3.8x zoom range
  • Ideal for wide range of shooting applications, including sports and nature
  • Stylish, light and easy to carry with high quality aluminium alloy finish on barrel
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation within lens for crisp, stable handheld shooting. Silent mechanism during movie recording
  • Two ED glass elements and two aspherical elements for excellent optical performance across zoom range
  • Quiet, responsive autofocus with internal AF mechanism: ideal for still and HD movie shooting
  • 7-blade circular aperture for beautiful defocus effects
  • Direct Manual Focus with non-rotating focus ring during AF: ideal for precise, comfortable manual focus adjustments

The Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-5.6 OSS is a light, compact telezoom lens, but its image quality suffers when shot at maximum aperture.

I apologize for not adding much new material to the review of my learned colleague below. But I do want to corroborate and support his thoughts and insights. Folks who did not buy an A6000 and 55-210 lens for $550 total (I got mine from Adorama, with whom I have no connection) in the recent holiday...

I have been on and off buying this lens for ages, encouraged by reading good reports and discouraged by reports that were not so good. Recently I purchased and have to say that I am entirely delighted with the results I get from this lens.

I bought this shortly after getting my a5100. Using the and the standard kit lens I was able to explore all areas off photography which interested me due to the wide range of focal length I now had access to.

This kit lens made me feel like I downgraded when switching from A mount to E mount. I think my old DT55-200SAM I had paired to an a300 took higher quality pictures with better bokeh. It makes sense, considering the wider f-stop and 9 blade vs 7blade aperture.

Wilkinson Cameras

Beautiful depth of field for close to middle range shots. Sleek and easy to carry.

Recently purcashed this lens for my Sony a6000 and it is great. Image quality is much better than I expected for the price

Works as advertised, though take care to not use it on full frame cameras. It vignettes too much for those. The sharpness is OK but won't win any awards. As for image stabilsation, always go for in-body stabilisation, as it makes no sense having it in lenses. Hence I can't judge its effectiveness. Very light and compact for the range provided! Excellent for traveling.

Have been very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this lens both in construction and optically, the results are sharp and the stabilisation really does work with slowish shutter speeds and hand held. Doesn't seem so big in real life compared with the online photos and weight isn't an issue at all. Looks stylish in black and the zoom ring is nicely weighted and smooth.
