False advertising! The lens you see in the picture is not the one you are linked to on Amazon.

i have the Sony A3000. I bought the Optika 300mm manual focus. But I am seeing this 200 mm auto focus lens. I like the idea of the auto focus. Would this be a good investment? I work in Africa at the time so I wont be able to see this lens or return it.
