Review Date: Jan 12, 2016 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $150.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Small, good reach, quite good IQ when you are smart and lucky—an exceptional value at the sometimes kit-price of $150 with its soulmate, the A6000.
Cons:
No aspect of it is as good as a Canon 6D with the 70-200 2.8 IS II. On the other hand the lens prices are in a ratio of about 12 to 1!

I apologize for not adding much new material to the review of my learned colleague below. But I do want to corroborate and support his thoughts and insights.

Folks who did not buy an A6000 and 55-210 lens for $550 total (I got mine from Adorama, with whom I have no connection) in the recent holiday season are owed a karmic favor by the universe. Congratulations and smiles for those lucky/genius folks who did!

Both A6000 and this lens are very very good overall and excellent value for the money!

Review Date: Oct 29, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,573.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: IQ at 25,600 is punishingly good! Puts my once beloved, now miserable 5D2 to shame well beyond words. Really!
Cons:
No coupon for Tesla S included in the B&H box. No 20 exposures per second capability. In every day high-end terms, though, it seems excellent.

Above from first few hours. More to come...
