positive:Excellent sharpness.
Great minolta colors
Fast focussing on the A700
comment:Sold my sony 70-200 and bought this little baby.
Sharpness is a little better than the sony and easier to carry around all day because of the weight.
Problem is that i have do more footwork.
Have no problems with the paint, there are only a few marks on it.
Now i have try to find a 1.4 converter or the 2.0.
This one stays.
