Our take on the Sony SAL-55200/2 DT 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Lens

by Tara W.
Sony

Team up your Alpha digital SLR with this Sony zoom lens for telephoto shooting. The lens is extremely versatile — snap family portraits or capture outdoor sports and wildlife from a distance. An extra-low dispersion glass lens element provides excellent image clarity for sharp photos with accurate colors. Its compact, lightweight design is a nice plus, too.
