The next lens review up for careful consideration is the Sony DT 55-200mm F/4-5.6. This lens is very similar in performance to the Sony 75-300mm F/4.5-5.6. They’re both the same price, and as far as I’m concerned, I’d pick the latter as it’s a bit sharper at 200mm, and will work on full frame cameras of the future. It did turn in a good review though, and if 200mm is enough for you, it’s a good bargain.
In other news, after careful examination of the 50mm F/2.8 macro bokeh, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is about the same as the 100mm F/2.8 macro, I said below it wasn’t quite as good. So that makes the 50mm macro all-around as good or better than the 100mm.
