"The Sony E 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS got a companion to cover the mid to long tele range - the Sony E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS. Both lenses are also sold in some double lens kits with a NEX camera. The 55-210mm OSS has a 3.8x zoom ratio which is about typical for such kit zoom lenses. The max. aperture of f/6.3 at 210mm is slower than average though - this is, most likely, a measure to keep the lens as small as possible. In full format terms it "behaves" like a "83-315mm" so it is suitable for applications such as basic portrait-, sports- and wildlife-photography."
