positive:sharp at all apatures, good build, light weight, fast focussing
negative:the little tiny focus ring.
comment:this little guy is my event coverage and food photography workhorse.
it spends the most ammount of time on my A700.
the bokeh and sharpness are excellent.
a perfect width for group shots at parties and good enough for portraits in a pinch. (you jsut have to get reeeeeeal close )
