Zoom lens for nex 5n
May 10, 2014


I'm thinking about getting some longer zoom for my nex...I'm pretty satisfied with my current lenses which are zeiss 24mm 1.8, sel 50mm 1.8, and kit 18-55mm. Just want to try to shoot some birds,animals,nature..nothing professional, just for fun. Also, it would be nice to get some good action photos of my kid, light sports...

My budget is about 200$. I know I can get sel 55-210mm for that money. The question is: is it worth to get sel 55-210, or going for some used tamron or signa with adapter? I heard some really mixed feelings about 55-210, some are satisfied with it, some don't...but many says it is not so good for action, low loght and IQ is quite questionable. I don't expect miracles for 200$, just wondering if for expampe tamron 70-300 with adapter is a better option? Or sigma, or...?

55-210 has OSS which is good, and no need for adapter...it's the easiest option. Just don't know how tamron or sigma would perform in terms of focus and speed?

Thanx in advance!
