    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I received this lens 1 day ago and did a quick test comparing it with a canon 100L and a canon 70-200 IS on 60d.
    To my surprise contrast, definition, IQ are very comparable if not identical (at same apertures, 4.5-5.6-6.3)
    Optical Steady Shot also works well, the smoker and coffee drinker that I am was able to go as low as 1/30 sec at the 210mm extremity.
    The zoom is very light, and balance is not that bad on the Nex5. It does extend at long range about 2″ but you can still hold the camera by the grip and do not need to support the lens with the other hand if you want to do so.
    Focus is admittedly not that fast, but positive nonetheless (progressive in good light, no hesitation and going back and forth).
    Built is good (plasticky metal?), there is no indication (distance, OSS on/off) on the lens itself, except focal range.
    For all purpose, due to the limited choice on Nex mount, you cannot go wrong with that choice. I used a FD 50mm, FD 135mm and a FD 200mm previously with an adapter but even the 135mm seems heavy and none of these obviously do AF.
    I was concerned mainly with the size of this zoom on the tiny Nex5 body more than anything and the IQ was a nice surprise (of course 4.5 – 6.3 is slow).
    Hope this will help in your decision because there are samples on the web but not any review yet.

    A pity that Nex7 is delayed and probably not available before months. This zoom will balance better on the slightly larger body of the Nex7.

    UPDATE 10/25/11: COMPARED TO CANON 70-200mm/4 IS

    Soon, experts will be testing this lens shooting charts on tripods with elaborate measures, which will be good for all of us to know. I’ve compared it today with a 70-200/4 IS directly on the Sony Nex 5 body only to find out that for practical purposes my manual focusing (with peaking and 7x handheld) is poorer (and way slower) than the 55-210mm in many cases.

    When focus is manually nailed , at same aperture (6.3) there is no real difference I can notice (on screen display at actual pixels), except in color and exposure (for which you can adjust). Definition on contrast are on par and i cannot be more happy with the Sony although I’ll have to bear with the slow maximum aperture and kick up the ISO.

    (to keep my Canon at 6.3 on the Nex, I first set it on a Canon body, hold DOF button while dismounting it. Lens will hold that aperture when you mount it on the Nex adapter but that is a lot to bother with. I also have an adapter with built in aperture for Canon EF but I have no idea how this does or does not affect IQ, bokeh vs the aperture in the lens itself).

    UPDATE 11/3/11: COMPARED TO CONTAX G 90mm/2.8

    Color is different, looks more natural to me with the Contax G.
    Bokeh is different as well, more pleasing to me with the Contax G.
    Definition is also superior with the Contax, at 100% when peeping.
    The Sony zoom is behind but it is Optical Steady and AF.
    I would prefer the Contax only when conditions are optimal, tripod, wide opening and time to manual focus (7x-14x) on a still subject. Convenience dictates the Sony otherwise (central AF. You can always tweak the color to your preference and there is no discernable difference in IQ at usual size display/print.
    In my particular case, I’ll not be able to nail focus most of the time with the excellent Contax, and in outdoor/bright situations, I’ll need to use a LCD Viewfinder to start with and not rely ‘blindly’ (pun intended) on the AF.

    UPDATE 5/3/12: COMPARED TO CANON FD 135mm/2.5 on Nex 7

    The Canon is about the same size but much heavier and you might as well to hold the combo with both hands because you’ll have to focus manually! At the same aperture (5.6) IQ is better with the Sony zoom but the zoom does not have the shallow DOF at 2.5 of the prime. At 135mm magnification is bigger (focusing distance is closer) with the zoom so it compensates for DOF if your subject is small and if you can get closer. Also you can zoom in all the way to 210mm (at 6.3 though) if you want bigger magnification/shallower DOF.
    Convenience wise, there is no contest, the zoom is faster, easier to use and has better IQ at same aperture. Stabilization also helps indoor and negates the 2 stops advantage of the prime (i.e. you can handhold the zoom 5.6 and 1/30 sec or the prime at 2.5 and 1/125 sec). You can get the Canon 135mm for under $100 though (+ the $25 adapter for Nex)and it may be fun to to play with DOF at 2.5.

    UPDATE 5/3/12: COMPARED TO CANON FD 50mm/1.8 AND SONY E 50mm/1.8

    The Sony 50mm/1.8 ($300) is a worthwhile addition to this zoom IMO due to the almost 4 stops difference, better IQ at same 4.5 aperture and same convenience (OS and AF).
    The Canon prime is admittedly small and beats both of them at IQ with a small margin. It is also cheap to get (as well as all the standards 40-50mm out there you…

    preferred choice over the 18-200, November 17, 2011
    By 
    zboub75 (Lausanne, Suisse) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I tried the 18-200 lens from Sony for the NEX. It’s a good lens, quick, but it has a major drawback: too heavy.

    So I ordered this one 55-210, and I’m pretty happy with my choice.
    It’s light, well balanced, and you can use the camera without holding the lens.
    And furthermore, it’s the same diameter (49mm) as the 16f2.8 and the 18-55, so it’s compatible with my polarized filter (opposite to the 18-200).

    Obviously the AF is not quick at 210mm, which may be bothersome for movie shooting, but it’s still fully acceptable for me.

    Good choice, good value for money, I’m a happy customer.

    A modern lens for modern times, March 6, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Modern design and production techniques have made it possible to mass market complex, automated lenses like the Sony E 55-210. But, can a modern consumer lens compete with an old legend? Gots to have a test…

    I have a 40 year-old Leica Elmar-C 90mm, off of the “entry level” compact Leica CL of the day. And while it is old, nothing is really all that new in the actual optics, especially in this focal range. Even the coatings were just fine then. It is a heavy little sucker, made of glass and brass, and nearly the same weight as the far bigger Sony.

    Nothing like the Big Sur coast for photos of rocks and water. Perched on a rock above a cove where the ancients once gathered abalone, I shot away with all of my lenses and my newly arrived Nex-7 from Amazon. Yay! Not a horrible way to spend an almost 75 degree sunny day in early March.

    After downloading and enlarging the results at 100% it was evident that at 90mm the Sony was just a hair less sharp in the center than the Leica. At the edges, the Leica was clearly superior. Wow! To me that is both a testament both how good Leica was making entry level lenses 40 years ago and how an affordable, automated zoom can compete with a quality prime lens at the length and sunny lighting conditions that the Leica was optimized to work at! Awesome.

    I believe that even a laboratory sort of test would find the same results. It was pretty clear in a real world sort of way.

    And, in the real world the Sony goes way beyond what any prime can do. You can zoom in and fill the frame, avoiding cropping. This will equalize the sharpness factor in many cases. It can focus automatically, has optical stabilization so that even the longest telephoto shots are sharp. It can be hand-held and allows for high shutter speeds, an aid to sharpness in itself of course. It is capable of fully being controlled by the camera and in essence becomes one with the camera in a way that is different than the past when you manually operated your camera, then manually operated whatever brand lens was on it.

    In video mode it tracked a big buzzard as it flew by. It focused well on waves coming at me, with the sun glaring from directly behind them.

    It worked well with a 49mm polarizing filter.

    The manual focusing is very smooth and precise, with a decent feel to it. It is a very good looking design, again modern in look as well, but the turned aluminum parts are more likely to be scratched than the rubbery, plasticy lenses on my old Nikon D40. I really need to get a decent little divided case. You can’t just throw these new Sony lenses into a pile.

    In the end, this is a quality, useful and well-priced lens, one I will always have with me when I go shooting around. You can get good results with the old technology, but modern lenses like this, mated to the cameras they were designed to work with, are just another thing altogether. The five-star rating reflects the value and utility of this excellent lens.
