Sony E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS Overview

An ideal complement to many kit zooms, the silver E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS Lens from Sony opens the door to many telephoto perspectives with its 82.5-315mm equivalent focal length range on APS-C-format E-mount cameras. With an optical design using two extra-low dispersion elements and two aspherical elements users will enjoy images with minimal aberrations. Also, thanks to Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, camera shake will be dramatically reduced, resulting in sharper images. An internal focus design enables fast, responsive AF and a minimum focus distance of 3.3'. Additionally, it has a seven-blade circular diaphragm for smooth, rounded bokeh.

Designed for APS-C-format cameras, this 55-210mm lens perfectly complements many kit zooms by providing an 82.5-315mm equivalent focal length range for telephoto applications.
A variable f/4.5-6.3 maximum aperture helps keep overall lens size and weight to a minimum.
Two extra-low dispersion glass elements are featured in the lens design to help reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
An internal focus mechanism contributes to faster, more responsive autofocus, the minimum focus distance of 3.3', and easier handling as the lens does not change in length during use.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

is it good for astrophotography? and Sony a3500
Asked by: osama
The Sony E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS Lens (Silver) (B&H# SO55210455) will indeed fit and work perfectly with the Sony a3000, Sony a3500, and Sony a6XXX series cameras. Ideal usages as far as astrophotography would be concerned would be to take star trail photos or shots of (relatively) bright objects such as the moon. If you want to take photos with stars appearing brightly and clearly then you'll either need to set your ISO very high and/or use a long shutter speed for best results with this lens. That would result in star trails. Be sure you have "Long Exposure NR" set to "On" to reduce shot noise. If you want a faster lens to gather more light so you can use shorter shutter speeds, this is the top pick of astrophotographers shooting with Sony mirrorless APS-C cameras: Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E (B&H# SI1614S) https://bhpho.to/3Aslbk3
