One of my favorite lenses, I bought it to pair with my Sony A6000 for wildlife photography in Asia. The combo gave me a much appreciated 300mm focal length thanks to the APSC sensor. While the aperture may be limited in some occasions, the price, weight and most of all image quality largely make up for it. Even paired with the small A6000, it is very easy to use thanks to its weight, and I take it with me almost everywhere during my trips.
It is very sharp, nicely built, and produces some nice bokeh in the longer focal range.
I guess by now you get my point, highly recommended!


5/5 rating in my opinion
can it be 6/5?
