positive:Overall picture quality
Mechanical feeling
comment:Very good overall picture quality with good colours!
Feels very solid to use, fits very well with my A550 with good balance and physical size of the lens.
Perfect walkabout lens, 18 mm is an extra plus!
Feels more solid and fits my camera better than the Tamron, but no significant noticable difference in picture quality, maybe better contrast in the Sigma then?
