Read the reviews. If your lens is not having trouble with auto focus it will. Sent mine back three times and is still not fixed. This seems to be very common in this lens. CJOutten

I’m confused. Is this lens compatible with the A99 II? It says on this website that it isn’t compatible with full-frame cameras (of which the A99 II is) yet on the Sony website it says that this lens is compatible. Some clarification would be great. Thanks.
Asked by: Matt
Hi Matt, the DT 18-250mm lens is compatible with the A99 II with some exceptions. 1) ADI Flash metering is available in combination with HVL-F58AM, F42AM, F56AM, F36AM, KONICA MINOLTA 5600HS(D), 3600HS(D) and 2500(D). 2) When you record movies with autofocus, the operating noise of the lens may be recorded. 3) The angle of view will be narrower down to that of APS-C size. 4) There is no support for hybrid phase detection AF.

Hi. I’m getting mixed messages. This lense will work with the Sony a99 II right? This website tells me that this lens isn’t compatible with full frame cameras, of which the a99 ii is, yet the Sony website says it is compatible. Please advise.
Asked by: Matt
This lens is compatible, however the A99 II will be shooting in an APS-C mode. This lens will not cover the full frame of the A99 II, but you can still use it in a cropped sensor mode.

Will this lens fit my sony a55?
Asked by: jeff z.
I use this lens with an a77. If the a55 is a full size DSLR, I can't imagine it wouldn't work.
