All in all, this is one heck of a lens. It is heavy, big, and unwieldy. But, the quality of this lens seems to be worth the trouble; a bit soft at 2.8, but is very usable at 4, and great above that. The focus is incredibly fast, and combined with the a700's excellent center sensor, almost too sensitive.
The lens is heavy, though can be used handheld. Realistically, for the best shots, at least a monopod is needed.
All in all, if you can get the lens for a good price, go for it.
