|negative:||AF in low light|
|comment:||This lens produces; Beautiful colours, nice bokeh and you can get really sharp pictures.|
Sometimes stopping down is necessary for the best result, but the biggest aperatures will get an OK result.
This combined with it's relatively small size and light weight for a 400 mm lens makes it an unique lens. You can zoom to 400 mm and make good pictures without using a tripod!
Downsode of this lens is it's AF speed in low light. Beside that, AF speed on a a700 is OK.
