positive:all
negative:what?
comment:my comment is only over a900 tested. Why?

it is complex in mechanical design, It's hard to get a mint sharp copy but in A900 is not problem by micro adjust setup.

razor Sharp, Bokeh is in other galaxy, the best 3D, CZ 24-70 is very far.

My Best G lens and I have 5 G lens, but remember, only for A900 camera because you need micro adjust for razor sharp sure.
