A6000: 55-210 vs 70-210 f/4 beercan
May 8, 2014

The beercan is used with an LA-EA2 adapter. The camera is an A6000.

Does the 55-210 outperform the beercan in all scenarios?

I know the BC is a bit brighter. At the short end, not so much, but around the 75mm mark it's already twice as bright only (f/4 vs f/5.6). But the BC won't be stabilized, and the 55-210's OSS appears to be pretty darn good.

The A6000 does *fast* tracking, and an updated 55-210 (if it needs it) should focus fast.

I could envision maybe some scenarios for indoor hockey and other indoor sports events, or outdoor at dusk, where the BC might have an advantage. But overall though, if you had both in the bag, do you think you'd be using BC at all?
