Quite the glass!

This lense was part of a kit buy with the A65. I have used this lense and some of my old Minolta glass with the A65 and this lense does NOT pale in comparison. Even though it isn't a Zeiss lense and not sure how much better a Sony G lense might be, this one with it's wide breadth of 18 to 250 does w...see moreof the reviewer's review
I've only just bought this lens .... yes, I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm already loving it. I bought my Alpha 300 a couple of years ago and I've been switching between the 18-70 lens that came with it (still a jolly good lens) and the 75-300 that I purchased shortly after. However when ...see moreof the reviewer's review
Great All-Around High Zoom Lens, But!

I have been able to get excellent pictures with my Sony Alpha 55 a...see moreof the reviewer's review

l have been using this lens for nearly 4 months and without autofocus having hard times. It is a take and go lens but without autofocus it is nothing.see moreof the reviewer's review
I LOVE this lens. It zooms really well. I took great pictures from the stands at our high school football stadium (and it is a big one). I was in the box at the top of the stadium and got pictures that looked like I was on the field. Great close ups too. Worth the money.see moreof the reviewer's review
Excellent SAL telephoto zoom!

I purchased this lens to complete my A55 kit. I use a Sony Zeiss wide and zoom. However, the Sony Zeiss line has no long tele-zoom lens in its compliment. I am returning home to Ireland in a couple of weeks where winter's effects on the the mountains is magical. The SAL 18-250mm with an ND/Polarizer...see moreof the reviewer's review
