High School Basketball with an F4
First my "bad" comment. I'm not a fan of extending barrels on lenses. For a bunch of reasons, but mainly it's because it creates a too long lens which make it more awkward. Now for the "good". I needed a 70-200 for high school basketball. I really needed an F2.8, but cost made it impossible. Next, how about a G lens for my Sony A6000 is a good choice, but it's F4. High school and college basketball gyms are notorious for bad lighting, and F4 wasn't successful for me in my Nikon days. So I thought, I'd try the Sony SEL55210, which is a 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS E-mount Zoom Telephoto Lens. I have done only one basketball tournament with this lens, at a reasonably new college gym, but alas, the lighting was awful. I took only one camera and lens, so I would have to make it work. Sony A6000 (mainly because it shoots 11 frames a second, and a has a really good focusing system. Over 5 games, 160 minutes of play, I shot 1,931 pictures. That's 12 shot a minute average. I kept seeing the photos as I shot, and kept not believing that the compbo of this camera and lens could take such good, clear, bright pictures. When I got home and went though them on the computer screen, I was dumbfounded. It didn't matter that the lens extends. It only matters that the results were excellent. The purchase of this lens was well worth it, 50 fold over. Doubly so when you consider the low price. Can't wait to use it outdoors, in daylight.

Fair Lens for the Price
It's a fair lens. Given the price and it's decent build quality, I'm okay with it. My biggest problem is with the zoom creep. The zoom doesn't actually creep by itself, but the slightest force will make it creep. If I wear the camera around my neck, and have the camera tilted around 20 degrees downwards, the soft bounce/swing motion of the camera when walking will cause the lens to creep out to the 100mm focal point by the time I walk about 10-ish feet. Because of this problem, my hands were on my lens the whole time I walked the zoo the other day even though the camera was hanging from my neck the whole time, because I didn't want the lens to creep out and be prone to damage. Keep in mind that this is just a new lens and it's already this loose on my second or third weekend using it. Other than the above mentioned problems, it seems fine. For autofocus, it focuses at a decent speed. Clarity/sharpness is good enough for my needs. If you want anything noticeably better, you're gonna be looking at 7x to 8x the price.

Great Value Telephoto
I come from decades of experience, as an amateur, with multiple formats and lots of lens use. I was doubtful this little lightweight (but beautifully constructed) lens would deliver the image quality I wanted, but the price is so reasonable I opted to try it. My copy is superb! Crisp images at all focal lengths, acceptable distortion, with excellent color saturation. It zooms without friction, smooth as butter. For the price and its obvious limitation (only 4.5/6.3) it is an ideal lens to place in your bag or carry mounted on the camera (very lightweight).

Great outdoor travel lens
For those with Sony Alpha A6xxx series cameras, this has a lot going for it. It's main benefits are a good zoom range (82mm-315mm 35mm equivalent), and compact, lightweight construction. It's biggest down side is its slow variable aperture (f4.5-f6.3) which rapidly diminishes as you zoom to longer focal lengths. Which means it's typically most useful outdoors in bright conditions (and only useful under those conditions at its longer focal lengths) But at 55mm it sports a faster aperture than the usual 18-55 f4.5-f5.6 kit lens. And it's center sharpness is quite good at all focal lengths. There is some pin-cushioning/barrel distortion near min and max focal lengths, as well as some vignetting, but it is automatically corrected for JPEGs and in a lot of RAW developers. Corners can be a little softer for subject matter like landscapes where the whole frame needs maximum detail, but if there is a main subject in the center of the photo, its not objectionable and can help accentuate that main subject. Overall, a great outdoor travel lens and very good value.

Great Value for budget minded photogs...
Lightweight and easy to use. I picked this up as a companion to the lens (16-50mm) that came with my a6000. Be mindful that this is a manual zoom lens. I've used this in a few different settings and am very pleased with the results. Focus time at the 210mm is somewhat slow, but for me, that's not an issue. The sample photos attached have been resized and compressed, so please bear that in mind. All were taken at the max focal length and have not been cropped.
