comment:Just a nice lens. It's too close to the 35mm for me to use it a lot, but every time I do, it's like an old friend is rediscovered. I used it more on the a700 than on the a900, probably because it's essentially a 35mm on the APSC. Very little distortion indeed, and an easy lens to use. For whatever reason, I found it very useful indoors.
