positive:Small, fast, colourful, sharp (in the centre).
negative:Less sharp as you venture further from the centre.
comment:Brilliant lens on the A900, A850, A99. Better colours than the Zeiss 2,8/35 and an overall nicer look to your images than the Zeiss as well.
This is a lens that flatters the photographer. It simply makes great looking images.
