|comment:||Hey guys i have waited off a while to review this lens. Its given me some great shots so far!! Its really sharp from 2.8. Is a little heavy with the a700 and flash but i don't mind. no real ca or distortion. its also sharper than the beer at lower F stops and also the 100-300 apo.|
one thing i have noticed is that it does over expose with the flash and you have to turn the flash exp down manually to get the desired affect.
I have added some of my photos on the lens page.
