This lens auto-focuses almost silently, which is typical of the NEX focusing motor design. Focusing seems quite accurate at all focal lengths, and reasonable quick in good light. Like all NEX's lenses so far, it's build solidly, has a relatively smooth zoom and manual focus action, along with a nearly silent auto-focus motor which is great for keeping focus noise out of movies. You'll also notice the 'OSS' or optical SteadyShot built into the lens. In-lens image stabilization is important as NEX camera bodies do not have sensor shift stabilization like the DSLRs and SLTs have. During my use, the OSS system worked very well in controlling camera shake, and Sony claims it has a 4 stop advantage over a non-stabilized lens of the same length. The specs for this lens says there are two aspherical, and two 'ED' elements used in the construction of the lens.

i share some photos...

Great lens this SEL55-210!!! If the quality of it's OSS provides a 4 stop advantage, that lens would therefore be a hypothetical equivalent of roughly an f1.4-2.8 tele-zoom lens (meaning since you would be able to shoot at lower than normal speeds with no camera shake)!

Anyway, lens aside... I am a fan of your work! Love this entire set - especially the close up of the sparrow. The soap-bubble in city streets is just brilliant!! The bubble juxtaposed in front of the white pedestrian lane stripes makes it look like a speeding-bubble (whoooooosh!) :)

MUY BUENO!!

Hi Freddytto,
great set of shots! They're so good, you've made me very keen to have a second look at buying the 55-210mm lens!!!

Silly question, but how did you manage the soap-bubble?
Cheers,
Paul

Excellent shots. I am not a big fan of 55-200 type lens, but they are usally very nice (like Nikon 55-200VR for instance). I might consider this lens in future.

Nice display of the capabilities of the 55-210 Freddy, these really show the range of the lens.

Nice grab on the bubble. ;)
