positive:Perfect portrait lens on a cropped sensor

comment:What a great lens, I was expecting a lot after reading all the previous comments and I wasnt diapointed. Makes for a very nice portrait lens on my A200. Ive so far used it mainly indoors for photos of the kids, I find images to be sharp, colourful and have great bokeh. Best of all I picked up my mint lens for only Ł40!!
