10 out of 10 points and recommendedVery nice pics, super fast AF w/ my a-100no significant cons
Meets all my expectations--highly recommended. AF is SUPER FAST w/ my Sony A-100 even at low-light. Image quality is superb. A little noisy (sound).reviewed January 5th, 2007 (purchased for $440)
Pretty darn good wide open and since the DOF of a prime 50 at 1.4 or 1.7 is so small I think I'll past on a prime in this lens' zoom range. Stopped down even to 3.5 it's very sharp.
I wonder if its possible for a zoom to add a little to the tele end and keep all the other qualities this lens has...That would be my only dream improvement.
