Lenses for Nature/Wildlife - A6000

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Bought an a6000 a few months back to kickstart my quarantine hobby and have been loving it since! I was curious to know what lenses some of you use/recommend for nature/wildlife/landscape photography. Still learning every day, as I'm still very new to this, but the right equipment goes a long way!

It would really help if you provided some more info with your question. I'll have to deduce some assumptions based on your question, so please correct me if I'm wrong here:

 - Your budget is limited (lenses over $1000 disregarded)

 - You're not planning to go fullframe in the foreseeable future (lens with fullframe coverage is not required)

 - By nature/wildlife you mean distant subjects (only lenses with 200mm focal length or longer considered)

 - You want quick autofocus and lens stabilization (wildlife moves around a lot and stabilized optics help a lot in reducing motion blur)

With these starting points the options are narrowed down to the following options I'd consider:

Sony E 55-210mm: cheap, small, lightweight, fairly decent for any new photographer

Sony E 70-350mm: fairly expensive, bigger and heavier but longer reach and much better image quality than the 55-210

If you want to have the option to go fullframe one day the Sigma 100-400 DG DN might be an option, but it's much bigger still than the Sony 70-350.
