comment:I own this lens for about a year now. First used it on my a330 and for now on my a500. I really like this lens, the range makes it a almost perfect walkaround lens. It's sharp enough for normal use, if you stop it a bit down the sharpness wil increase a lot. I also use it for architecture and landshape shots.
