Pros:Compact and lightweight. Excellent sharpness. It does not suffer from flare and chromatic aberrations.
Cons:Part 4.5, so a little 'dark. But we must 'consider, that are 4.5 up to about 130 focal, then, it is not so bad.
Opinion:After trying various 70-300, from the most 'cost, type the Tamron and Sigma APO I had arrived at the Tamron 70-300 VC USD, and felt that, without having to spend a fortune to have reached a good result. But there was one problem, the weight and size of the Tamron, forced me too often ... leave it at home, so much so that in the end I decided to give it away. Meanwhile, in the meantime, I found one of those opportunities that you can not let it go, and I found myself at home the aforementioned Sony 55-300. I immediately noticed the compactness and lightness, then I went out to do all the same tests that usually do with a goal, the same subjects at different distances, at different apertures, so it can then make direct comparisons on the PC. And I have seen, that Sony was also higher than the Tamron VC, then, to remain even sharp enough at maximum extension (test done on the bells of a church tower to 500 meters away!). I seemed to be born a second time, being able to see much of the details, I had not seen before !. For me, at the level of "price-performance";, He is unrivaled. In addition ', I is in a small bag-kit, along with everything else (only one SLT A58 with Sigma 18-125 HSM, spare battery and little else for a total of about 2 pounds, including the bag) I can take it always with me, on every occasion. Yet, before 30 years with Nikon, and then for three years with Sony, the goals, I've had and tested ... really a lot !!
