comment:I love this glass. It is much faster than my 70400G and am very happy with its performance on the A99. The only reason I gave it a Sharpness rating of 4.5 is that it gets a touch soft wide open. I also noticed some CA wide open as well. Other than that I am extremely happy with it's performance and do not regret the purchase at all.
