More Information

Close for comfort

  • With this 55-210mm telephoto zoom (82.5-315mm on an APS-C sensor) you're never too far from the action. Whether photographing your daughter's championship game from the bleachers or capturing a shot of a mischievous capuchin monkey in the canopy overhead, you've got the focal range to get close to your subject.

Keep your focus

  • Photographing children or monkeys can be tricky. They're not necessarily ones to stay put. So when you need to move your camera to follow your daughter's breakaway or quickly track a jumping monkey, Sony's Optical SteadyShot image stabilization works to prevent image blur.
  • Whether it's your daughter streaking down the wing to put a precision pass into the box or a monkey leaping from branch to branch in the treetops, quick autofocusing is crucial when you're trying to capture action. The lens' internal focusing system achieves fast, quiet autofocusing with a short minimum focusing distance so you get sharp, detailed photos.
  • Unleash your artistic side with the 7-blade circular aperture. When defocusing the background to create a bokeh effect, the circular aperture creates round blurred defocused points of light instead of the usual and less appealing polygonal shape. Plus the maximum f/4.5-6.3 aperture offers smooth and natural defocusing.

Quality optics

  • The aspherical lens design reduces spherical aberrations delivering high sharpness and contrast resulting in significantly improved image accuracy and quality. The design also reduces the overall number of elements needed so you get a more compact, lightweight telephoto zoom lens.
  • ED (extra-low dispersion) glass reduces chromatic aberration at telephoto ranges, providing superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings. So you get stunning images with exceptional colour quality and higher resolution.
  • This E-mount lens is ideal for basic portrait work, capturing sports, or wildlife photography. It's compatible with E-mount mirroless cameras.

  • from Toronto, ON


Free delivery from Bestbuy was great- arrived in two business days and was well packed. The lens itself is great for upper-amateur level photography. I bought it for my Sony a5100 and it does all I expected it to.

Sony Zoom

So far I'm happy with this product, it performs as I expected. It seems to work well with the Sony a6000.

If you're an amateur photographer, as I am, you will like this lens. High def, very responsive, excellent pictures. I must say, I didn't find much use for the longer end of the lens. Rarely did I need to go the full 210mm, but 135mm just about hit the spot. I think my next purchase is the wide angle, 16-24mm lens. I feel like I might get more mileage out of it. Things to consider when shopping for a lens. Having said that, very happy to have this zoom lens.
