  • Sony 55-200mm f/4-5.6 DT SAM SAL-552002

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharp, light, cheap
    small manual focus ring

    Bought this lens 2nd hand, using it on my NEX 5 with an adapter and am very pleased.

    Pictures are excellent, very sharp. I rate them higher than the images I got from my Canon 70-300 IS USM on a 40D.

    Autofocus with the E-Mount adapter isn't great, searches a lot at times, don't know if that's to do with the lens or adapter or.. but I've been using manual focus mostly and with focus peaking on its easy to focus.

    The high image quality rating of 8 I give it isn't a "for the price" rating because I think this lens stacks up well against much more expensive options. I give it a 10 overall when its low price and value for money are considered.
