compared to:
price paid:
positive:- sharp
- light
- low distortion
negative:- some vignetting
comment:I have added this lens to my new A850 gear to have something wider than my 28-75 Kit lens.

Very nice, very sharp, even wide open. I did some test sheet shooting. Corners are perfect.

Works well on FF, with some light vignetting. Can be corrected with the DxO V2.6 Elite which is bundled to the A850 Kit, very easy.
