comment:Just got this lens to complement my Tamron 70-180mm lens. Very impressed so far, as it weighs in at just 2 1/2 pounds!! Balances well on my Sony a7iii, perfect for hand held photography. Auto focus is quiet and accurate, and eye focus works extremely well. The image quality is outstanding, specially at the long focal length. Also impressive so far is the legendary bokeh! Hard to believe such a great lens can be had for under one grand, highly recommended.
P.S.: This lens works even better and faster on my new a7iv!
