but obviously if you can stretch your budget, do so. I had this lens some years ago, had to sell to pay for something else. and im looking at buying a new one again, its that good. to sum up for a smidge over £100 its a great lens
I have to say that I'm really impressed with the lens. It's very clear, it's easy to carry and the manual focus is easy, and quick to sort out.
I have realised it's not powerful enough for some of the shots I want, ie. birds at sea, but it's great for anything within 100 yards or so.
I'm very pleased to have this to play with and I'm sure I'll be able to sell on when I eventually upgrade.
I read that the 70-300mm Sony G lens is fabulous, but having laid out the thick end of £600 on the a33, I could scarcely justify almost the same again no matter how good the lens was. I paid £179 for this Sony 70-300mm lens from Comet, so the current £175 price tag is pretty good. I had the advantage of Sony VAT cashback on the camera and lens so it was a competitively priced package. I was expecting an OK if not blistering performance from what seems to be a budget lens, but was very surprised at how good my results were. You do need good light for the best results, as the maximum aperture is f4.5, but the a33 has a quite useable ISO 3200 capability to offset this. I found the sharpness to be acceptable at minimum zoom, and improving to very good at maximum.
The 35mm equivalent works out at 105-450mm, and I now have more than enough reach for those offshore shots. It is also great for candid shots of our little neices and nephews as you are far away enough for them not to see the camera, and so they act naturally.
All in all I am very pleased with this lens. It is well made, quite heavy. In fact it feels a lot like the old Minolta lens in terms of construction. I would recomend it over the Sigma zoom for a33 users due to the need for rechipping of the Sigma lenses to work with Sony SLT cameras.Read more ›
The auto focus works well and quickly helping in the composition of shots. All in all well pleased.
Hence the propriatory lens that came with my alpha A200 eventually just felt to insignificant! I was going to buy the sigma equivalent as it was a few quid cheaper but when I saw that SONY were offering cashback I thought what the hell, go for the brand name.
So it came in the post, I whacked it on the camera, turned it to full extension, aimed at my missus, nothing but blackness! Then I realised I was staring at the back of her left nostril! Talk about magnification, it's great fun.
As I said, I'm no expert so can't give you an expert review but if you want to up your magnification capabilities and you don't want to re-mortgage the house in order to do so, this lens is just the ticket. Great fun, easy to use and feels well built. Thumbs up!

Bought to go on a Sony camera, but when used the quality was poor when based against a much older Minolta lens that was off of a non digital camera. Returned for refund.Published 20 months ago by chris g
