This Sony SAL-55200-2 55-200mm f/4-5.6 DT AF Lens is a perfect companion lens to the 18-55mm kit lens. This lens has an equivalent focal length of 82.5-300mm in the 35mm/full frame standard. In other words: this is an inexpensive, short-to-long telephoto zoom for the emerging photographer. Great for nature and travel imagemaking.
Its cost, design, and overall size all lead the tyro to comfortably accessorize their kit lens, and begin developing a library of optics for their camera.
Note: This is the 2nd version of this lens. Not compatible with 35mm or "full-frame" digital SLR cameras
