Got the same lens on my A6000. Great Telephoto lens. Excellent price. I paid $175 a couple years ago for a used copy.

These product descriptions in the app are so bloody long sometimes, really poor thinking on SDs part. At least limit the length.

Lowest for Amazon. I bought this shortly after I bought the A6000 deal on Prime day at Best Buy for $120.99 before tax. So it's been cheaper elsewhere.

Amazon had the a6000 plus this lens for under $100 on prime day.

People were saying that they were getting charged $13-22 just for the lens portion of the bundle.
Yeah, but that was a price mistake so it doesn't really count...

Initially I thought this was Round 2 but then noticed third party sellers have it for the same price.

Cool story bro. Maybe you missed half my post that said I bought the camera on Prime Day - I'm well aware of the insane purchases made, but the BB for $121 was the lowest ever that was on sale far longer than 30 minutes at midnight.

Thanks OP. For $120 plus tax
Picking up excellent condition open box from Best Buy, paid via Paypal for extra 5% back on Chase Freedom

Looks like Adorama and BH matches Amazon price

It's decent but if that's a priority you might want to look at some prime lenses. This is more suited for versatility. It has a bit more reach than my Sony 18-135 so sometimes I'll use it on my a6500 for sporting or other outdoor events where I want the reach. Does surprisingly well for the price particularly with good lighting. If you're a newbie then I'd recommend it at this price as a great starter lens with some reach. It was commonly included in some of the kits and much more highly rated than the other common kit lenses.

I got this lens as a bundle with my a5100 camera from Crutchfield back in late 2014 (the bundle made this additional lens effectively only $150). It's my first quasi-DSLR setup and this lens certainly is able to pull off the bokeh effect at the longer focal lengths. I don't know sh*t about photography and use everything on auto but I've been able to take many pictures that are canvas print worthy for my home. Here's a couple examples. I know it's not "prime lens" I keep hearing about but for someone who isn't really into getting to technical with photography nor wanting to invest any real money, it does pretty darn well.

Quality or amount?

at 210, probably ok. At 55, there wont be much. Quality of bokeh is subjective.

Understand this to determine depth of field
