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!

Excellent value for money, can hunt for focus at times but pictures are sharp and over 85% are keepers. Took this on safari in South Africa and was extremely happy with the results. Cannot warrant paying 5 times or more for faster glass when I use it mostly outdoors.

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

AS far as image quality goes this is a very good lens. I can get sharp images all the to 300mm handheld if the shutter speed can be kept high enough, otherwise a tripod is needed. Sharpness drops off a little above 250mm but not much. It is lightweight so easy to carry.

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.

Extremely sharp, but very slow to focus and sometimes hunts. So it can be hit or miss with birds in flight or fast-moving objects. But when it locks on, it is as sharp as lenses costing 10x as much, and even does surprisingly sharp semi-macro.
