ownership:I own this lens
compared to:sony A200 kit lens, minolta 50mm 1.7
price paid:4000 NOK
positive:the push/pull choke on AF/MF is exellent.
heavy som helps stabilize kamera when holding
negative:little heavy, its a must to use two hands and excerzie reagularly :D

you can not use the onbord flash (at least not the A200 flash) unless you are between 50 and 70 on the zoom unless you want bottom shadow.
comment:It really gets attention from people and you pass for a pro in most circles when you get this lens on the camera even when it only is A200 your shooting with.
