Re: Thoughts on the Sony DT 55-300mm F/4.5-5.6 SAM?

I've had this lens for nearly a year now, very good for it's price - 180GBP. I haven't done any "proper" tests but observed that I believe it to be pretty sharp & quite contrasty. Only criticism is about the focus, with my A57 it really doen't like moving subjects & as noted above can hunt quite easliy.

I don't know & others may help here but using it with a camera with better autofocus eg A77 or 99 might improve things

Overall & with that proviso I think it's a good lens

Good shooting !
