Maxwell, Greater London Photo hobbyist

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It nice fits the zooming range above the standard lens. It's easier to carry and use than the 300 mm lens.
Bad points:
If this lens is used with the E adapter for a NEX camera then it's important to be aware of the slower auto focus times. Manual Focus with peaking might be a better option in some cases

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very good lens, it gives great zoom to get much closer to the subject. Very easy to use and quiet.
It has auto focus and manual focus - both are perfect.
Would recommmend to anyone.
Bad points:
There are cheaper ones but not from Sony, so I guess this is the best choice.

Good points:
Great image quality, small, lightweight, overall great value for money.
Bad points:
For the money, none. Can get faster / more robust lenses, but they are an order of magnitude higher in price.
