|compared to:||Sony 18-70mm|
|price paid:||280 (Used)|
|negative:||Hood is small, can't block some light at times|
|comment:||Bought this after the kit lens and wow wat a difference. I love the solid feel and the EX finish. For me the finish doesn't get dirty that easily as some other reviews claim. I also find the push/pull system to be quite nice though I have not used other ones. The push/pull system with the AF/MF button on the A700 is good, not much problem swiching from AF to MF.|
I do find the lens hood not blocking some light at times. The F2.8 is great. Auto focus speed is ok as I was able to capture some decent shoots of indoor sports.
Overall this is a fun lens and defenately great for the price.
