    Great for kids concerts

    Customer review by Cam4FamGuy

    by Cam4FamGuy

    I love my Sony NEX camera but for my family needs at school concerts and recitals and such I found my lens to be not much help in getting the close up or pixilated shot when cropping them out of the cast of many. I used the lens at the middle school fall concert . From the back row of the gym bleacher I was able to get some great close ups. With some additional cropping I was able to show off my songbird in close up without being the dude that runs out in front of everyone to get the great shot. The lens was perfect for my needs and feels light to match my NEX. The fact that I was able to get it priced at $160.00 was very pleasant because I could not justify spending over $300 for it on my budget. The auto zoom is a bit slow but using it manually is as fast as your hands can be. The auto focus works great. I can't wait to use it on the outside world behind the boat with skiers and tube riders. I will update this next summer.

    18-200 vs 55-210

    Customer review by Trophy

    by Trophy

    The 55-210 is 6.4 ozs lighter and a more fitting lens for the nex where the 18-200 is heavy and 67 mm in size. the 67 size does let more light in and 18 is better for shooting indoors where subjects are close to the camera but remember you will need a flash extender for this lens or the bigger HVL-F20s. If you don't want to spend a lot of money the 55-210 is the lens for you, As for me I have two nex cameras the nex 3 and the nex 5N so I plan on owning them both. I will probably only use the 18-200 on the nex 3 and get this lens for the nex5n.the reasons are the 18-200 is huge and looks out of place on the 5n camera and so does the flash.that being said I love the 18-200 and the F20s for hiking there's not much time to change out lens and or flash plus the dust and rain would be a problem.

    I got the NEX5N last month, and couldn't wait for this 55-210mm lens to come out. I just received it last week! I find to be a great addition to the 18-55mm that comes with the camera. It provides telescoping capability, and works so seamlessly with the camera's shooting and editing functions. The camera recognizes the shutter and aperture ranges for this lens, so functions like manual focus, priority continuous shooting, and panoramic shots still comes out well. Optical quality is what you'd expect from Sony. Although it expectedly adds head weight to the camera, it's amazingly compact for the comparable zoom. For the cost, I feel that this telephoto addition was a better buy than getting the 18-200mm combination option.

    I am by no means an expert on photography but the f indicates how much light is let in. The lower the value, the more focused the subject is and the blurrier the background is. So, a 1.0 is great for flowers or still objects but tougher for people. As for comparing the 18-200, I am going for this since I don't want that large of a lens. I feel like the 18-200 is for people who don't want to change lenses and don't mind using such a large lens ALL the time. For me, it was a non-starter. Sony also only says this supports the new cameras. I'm assuming this is a misprint since it should support any NEX mount camera. Anyone know anything different?

    Good lens... lacks sharpness at high end

    Customer review by AyanD

    This is a very good, compact lightweight lens for my Nex 5N. Also cozy feel and good looking. Great for outdoor/portrait. Nice stabilization too. At the dark side - this lens is not sharp wide open at the tele end. If you zoom more that 150mm or so then you have to step down the aperture and the image quality is so so. This is 210mm in APS-C so you can expect it to work as good as a 350mm full frame. But in reality it doesn't. If you plan to take nice bird or animal picture it is not the lens for you (probably nex series is not for you) but if you plan to take picture for normal outdoor or some long range portrait - its perfect.

    Customer review by UserNex7

    by UserNex7

    I purchased this lens as a part of the A3000 bundle after reading the reviews here and in several sites. Over the holidays, I used the lens to take photos from Inspiration point on my NEX 7. Viewing them on my Mac, I was blown away. Images were extremely sharp, great color and the zoom was useful in capturing birds and the sunset. Considering the cost, this is a great purchase and I am very pleasantly surprised. It does need a lot of light and is not lightning fast to focus. But the photos were great throughout the zoom range. I would highly recommend this lens. It is a tremendous value for money.

    Response to two lower comments...

    To answer the first comment: You say you have the NEX-5 which should have come with the 18-55mm lens correct? If so then you should just go for this lens. 1) It is over $400 cheaper than the 18-200mm zoom lens and zooms further than that one by a bit. 2) Another reason why you should just go for this lens is because if your camera came with the 18-55 zoom lens, then this one, the 55-210mm lens, would basically pick up where the 18-55mm lens left off and go the extra distance you were looking for. I'd only recommend the 18-200mm lens if you didn't already have the 18-55mm lens....Does that make sense? Also, the f-stop that you see on the lens is the min and max aperture....That number is important especially when you're wanting to take pictures of sporting events and action shot. However, its only really important if you plan on manually adjusting the shutter speed. The higher you adjust the shutter speed the less light is let in. So when you adjust to shutter speed to the higher points, your pictures come out really dark so having a lens with a really high aperture, say 1.0 or 2.8, will allow you to open the aperture blades back up even though you have adjusted the shutter speed already, thus giving you the perfect shot. This camera already have a really high frames per second so getting that perfect actions shot be no problem even without adjusting the shutter speed to its fastest speed. I hope this helped! ;-)

    NOT a great lens. Trouble Getting Crisp Images.

    I've been using a Nikon DSLA with m 18-270mm Sigma lens for several years now. Moved to the A6000 this past month, and admittedly have had trouble adjusting to how this camera works, reacts to settings, but while I get great images with the kit 16-50mm lens, i have managed to get very few great images with this 55-210mm lens. very disheartening. Actually debating returning it...

    It is a nicely made and finished lens which works great on my Sony NEX 7. It is decent wide open, very sharp two stops down. The zoom mechanism is well placed and easy to move, the focus ring well placed as well. It also continues the use of 49mm filters which is great if you use a polarizer. I am pleased with the color, sharpness, contrast and bokeh of this lens. It fulfills it's intended purpose beautifully.

    I got this lens for a couple of month, it came together with the NEX-F3Y kit, its pretty amazing with it superb quality of images. Particularly at low-light condition. The only problem is a little bit long in length, it might poses some discomfort while you are shooting photographs in a crowded area. But I guess probably I might get used to this as time goes by.
