Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good choice to extend beyond the kit zoom lens So much better than the manual focus, film SLR zoom lenses of old. Clarity and contrast is very good, even in quite challenging light. It is light enough not to weigh down the front of the small Sony camera and the optical stabilisation does a really great job, even on full zoom taking video. I wish I had bought it ages ago. 29 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Zoom Lens Great lens for the Sony Alpha 5100, perfect companion to the 16-50 lens which came with the camera. Solid construction, nice movement and excellent quality photos. £50 cashback from Sony at time of writing makes this lens a steal! 23 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It served it's purpose while travelling to Switzerland and photographing the mountains and the wonderful scenery With £50 cash back it is a very good value for money. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good "Budget" Long Zoom I use this on my A6000 and it takes good photos. Sounds obvious but you still need to have the camera as still as possible, even with OSS. That way you can get sharp picture. But have a play first and get used to what it can and can't do and its superb. There are longer , sharper lenses but at a severe cost. This is a decent lens 02 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good lens combo Focal length choice really usefull. Saves on having to carry yet another lens. 13 November 2012
