It's a G lens, that means wonderful colour, no distortion, sharp like a razor and that magic bokeh that I've seen only with G lenses. Everything as we can expect from a lens of this class.
Also, focus is very fast and the lens is compact and light. For me these are the most outstanding features. I can handle without a tripod an extremely fast, light and compact 200/2.8. The perfect lens for candid shots.
With its APO TCx2 it becomes a perfect 400 / 5.6.
And picture quality doesn't suffer at all.
It's a pity that it's not longer in production, even under Sony re-badging. If you can have one of this jewel, don't hesitate to take it.
