The Shoestring End

The Sony DT 55-200mm – slow as molasses, made for crop sensor, but at £60 its an absolute gem, and a veritable bargain.

With a max aperture of F4 at the wide end and F5.6 at the tele end its perfectly good outdoors and even on the ’99 – where resolution is dropped to a ‘mere’ 10MP it doesn’t disappoint.

And you can even achieve reasonable subject isolation, at the long end, and within reasonable proximity of the intended subject.

I have recently been taking The Rainmaker out and about, but sometimes you want the reach without the weight.

I have been looking for other zooms – Sigma 75-200mm springs to mind, but sample variation is renowned and the only one on the board I’ve seen has a serial number starting with the dreaded 1xxxxx.

So for today the little Sony zoom fit the bill – It may  not be perfect, but its cheap,small and light, and good fun to boot.
