The SonyAFDT 55-200 mm  f/ 4-5.6

The Sony 55-200 mm F/4-5.6 (SAL-55200) lens is a good choice for both beginners and professionals. The lens covers a 3.6x range of focal lengths from medium to ultra telephoto(82.5 – 300 mm for 35 mm equivalent). The lens is very fast, which enables shooting even in low light conditions. Thanks to its light weight, it can be used as a kit lens by any photographer.

The Sony 55-200 mm F/4-5.6 optical scheme includes an ED glass element, which minimizes the possibility of flare  and effectively combats chromatic aberration. The lens provides sharp and contrast images with splendid color  rendering.
