Does the 55-210 focus fast enough for kids action?
10 months ago

I have a NEX6 and am thinking of letting my DSLR go, but I need occasional long telephoto for kids events (horseback riding, school spirit days, etc.) Does the 55-210 focus fast and sure enough in outside light to be useful for this, and get a lot of keepers?

I have to admit, I'm a little turned off by it's looks when mounted on a NEX -- just seems a little awkward, but it might be a good solution for me, in terms of useability.

Any experience with the 55-210 for these kinds of events?
