positive:Couldn't tell you
negative:AF dead on A300
Only worked in Manual Mode
comment:Would spin up but then the AF would not engage at any distance.
Switch to MF and it worked, but the focus ring is very clumsy and not easy to get right.

Very disappointed, but it brought me to this group as part of my problem search, so that was a good thing.

comment:I was very disappointed with this lens, did not meet any of my expectations. AF was very slow and half of the time didn't focus or "hunted". using it on manual focus was the only way it was usable. pictures were very low contrast. Maybe it was just my copy but would not recommend anyone to buy this lens.
