compared to:
price paid:700 €
positive:Build quality
Internal zoom (keeps same length while zooming)
negative:Slow AF
Min focus distance too long
Not as sharp as it should for that price
My sample tends to underexpose, especially with alpha 900
Lens hood is a joke
comment:A bit disappointed by this lens. Difficult to get sharp pics.
Underexposure with my sample : needs + 0.3 manual correction.
