    I received my used Sony 55-210 lens today. I bought it on eBay for $150. It's in excellent condition and I took it out for offical trials at one of my many official Sony testing compounds.

    Overall, I am very pleased with this lens. I also have the FE 70-200 for full frame. While the FE will work on by A6000, the thing is the size of a bazooka. The 55-210 is half the size and weight.

    I intend to use this lens as a vacation/travel lens, along with the 18-55 and 35/1.8. If you're looking for an inexpensive longer zoom for your A6000, I recommend that you take a look at the 55-210. Here are some test shots.

    Very sharp! Looks like you received a good copy. I found mine to be soft at 210, but great everywhere else. It's hard to beat as part of a travel ensemble. It works great when there's plenty of daylight.
