Been watching this lens for a while and cheapest ever amazon price!

Fits Sony E-Mount cameras e.g. Sony Alpha A6000 series

Not a high end lens but very good value for money for the range it offers - good starter telephoto lens

Also same price in PC world for those who wish to collect in store

I'd go with Amazon over PC World as the quality control on these is not so good so you may wish to return one or more before you're happy. I tested three others prior to settling on mine and there was some noticable variation. One was so badly decentered I felt justified in returning as faulty. Anywho, camera snobs will cry how it's slow and pixel peepers gonna peep but it's perfectly adequate for it's intended purpose as a daytime general purpose tele. If you want better then it's £1100 on the f4 G which on something like an A6000 is just dumb. Rambling heat from me.

Nice find @bensbb - thanks for sharing
A very good price, I paid £200 for one of these from Amazon warehouses at summer.
might be cheapest on amazon for black - dunno cos lightning deals dont show on camelcamel
but has been 135 for the silver version on amazon (and 99quid one time elsewhere)

ok lens, nowt special but not much else unless you want to spend 6 times the price
heat added though as its sitting quite high right now

Same price at John Lewis with 2 yr warranty.
Ok, looks like I'm not ebaying my one this week! Good find OP
Good price for this lens, but I have to say I didn’t really like it very much. I ended up getting a used SAL55300 and an A to E mount adapter: it doesn’t look as pretty sitting on the A6000, but it has a longer range and I’m able to take better pics with it. The SEL55200 is more convenient though - and I don’t think you can really get a better E mount zoom lens without spending another £600-£700!
It's been my first tele so difficult to compare. For the price and size though I think it's great. Looking back I've got some of my favourite pictures out of it.
I bought one of these on eBay brand new from a guy who ships them from France. Paid £135 all in and took 2 weeks.
Is this compatible with Sony A5100? ....web site a little confusing so any expert advice greatly appreciated....voted hot 🏻
Yes. I've had one for years and it's a great cheap lens

Yes all E-Mount lenses should fit this camera - I also found a video online which showed this lens in use on an A5100

yeah all the lenses 'emount' physically fit on all the nex, a3xxx, a5xxx, a6xxx ranges
if had a full frame camera then would need to be slightly more careful
Thanks OP, ordered one from John Lewis. Black and silver both in stock online at £179.
