The silver E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS E-Mount Lens from Sony features extra-low dispersion glass, a broad zoom range and aluminum alloy construction. On an APS-C camera, this zoom lens has a 82.5-315mm focal length range, suitable for event photography and portraiture alike. Internal focusing and linear motor-driven AF system help create responsive yet quiet focus while minimizing mechanical noise. Additionally, a separate manual focusing ring capable of Direct Manual Focus allows seamless transitions from AF to manual focusing.
Two extra-low dispersion elements, combined with Sony's Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilization, improve the overall quality of images captured at the telephoto end of the zoom range, especially while shooting in low-light conditions. OSS is capable of reducing the appearance of camera shake by up to four stops. An aspherical focusing lens located in the center of the optical path help to reduce aberrations throughout the zoom range as well as improve the AF response time of the lens.
Frustration Free Packaging means that the lens was part of a camera kit and the Camera was sold separately in the retail box. so the lens comes in the white box.

This is my second lens. This first one, I must confess, I did not take care of and it got some kind of fungus, mold, not real sure, on the inside of the lens. It would cost me just as much to send it in to fix it than it would be to buy another one (Thanks Sony). This is my go-to lens when taking pics of the kids sports (soccer/basketball). Catches some amazing shots that make me look like I know what I am doing. IS probably one of the few reasonably priced lenses available for the NEX-5.
Great price, product as advertised (white box) and accesories, the UV protector is great for protecting your lens from dust or fingerprints (the dust and fingerprints remain on the UV protector). I use it on a Nex 5 Camera and works fine, no problems. Good for taking photos on your children school or sports events. Autofocus works similar as the lens that comes with my Camera (SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 Wide-Angle,SEL1855 E-mount 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS) fast and accurate. Great lens.
It was just as advertised. It's a nice quality Sony lens with some nice accessories like a UV filter, lens caps and some cleaning supplies. Comes in a plain white box.
