I received the product and tested in on my A77 (original version). I wanted it to replace my old Minolta 100-300 AF lens (not an APO, let alone an APO D) The old lens (free with a $25.00 purchase of a Maxxum 7000i at a rumage sale) was much sharper than the new Sony 55-300.
Since this was a gift, It would be great if Beach Camera would allow me to exchange it for another lens. Was this review helpful?
Slow And Poor Image Quali
Perhaps there is something wrong with the lens I bought a few years ago but it has NEVER been as sharp as I would like. My 200mm lens (also a Sony) is far sharper. My camera is a Sony a33 and its original lens had to be replaced because of quality issues and Sony paid for it.
Just used it at a football game during an afternoon in good light. Sharp results, mates well to my A65. No focus issues with action. A keeper!
Sharp lens, Excellent value, lightweight and relatively small in size
Slow lens, no ultrasonic motor
I purchased this lens for mainly wildlife, and really zooming in on stuff farther away when needed. In a recent trip to Scotland, I was able to really zoom in on a couple of pheasants that were out in a field.
Outstanding lens for the money and works well with camera
Very nice Lens! Would highly recommend!
This thing is amazing. I used it for a wedding I was photographing and the images were beautiful. Definitely recommend.
Great lens, great price, great company. Will use them again!
Great lens. The quality is amazing and the weight isn't too overbearing. It'seems detail is perfect even at max zoom.
