>> REVIEWS (last updated: 31.01.07)
CameraLabs have reviewed the Sony SAL75300 75-300mm f4.5-5.6 lens where they rate the lens 70% and write;
“In terms of build and optical quality, the 75-300mm is roughly equivalent to the 18-70mm kit lens, so while it will extend your focal range, it won’t be a step-up in terms of overall quality. The focusing is relatively slow and loud, and the front section also rotates which will annoy users of polarising filters…Ultimately the 75-300mm is a budget lens but performs well for the price. If you bought an A100 with a single lens, it’s well worth considering, although you should also check out the Sigma 18-200mm and Tamron 18-200mm alternatives, along with Sony’s own version. They may not zoom as close, but they do have the convenience of a single lens solution. If you’ve decided the A100’s right for you but not bought it yet though, the twin lens kit sporting the 18-70mm and 75-300mm lenses is a great option. It’ll give you a highly flexible focal range at a low price that’ll suit many photographers for a long time.”
