Sony 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 35mm Zoom
A compact zoom lens that brings you closer to action and portrait subjects. This compact, lightweight 4X zoom lens is a great value and an ideal choice for covering outdoor activities and sports action, even in large stadium locations. Its wide zoom range of 112.5mm to 450mm (35mm equivalent) handles both middle-ground subjects and portraits shot from a relaxing distance, so people won’t be nervous -- even captures intimate details and natural wonders close at hand. The SAL-75300 zoom lens lets you take incredible close-up portraits without making your subject nervous.

Strengths: Low price and nice images
Weaknesses: Slow to focus, loud
This lens can get the job done. It is slower to focus and louder than the higher end lenses but for the money it gets the job done. Images need to be sharpened more than the higher end lenses as well. I would put this in the same category as the Olympus 70-300mm as kit lens quality.
