|comment:||Very nice lens, my main "workhorse" for motorsport events. Counting with the wide apertures allows for even more creative shooting and this lens delivers all the good stuff that you would need in the field.|
Sharp on the center and a little less on the corners, this lens is the ideal partner for the A77 that i recently bought. With the A200, the heavy weight of the lens makes this a tricky combo, but nothing a good photographer would argue about.
Fast AF (with the A77 and the A200, without any chipping), the only drawback is the soft images at 200mm, with f/2.8 apertures (stopping down to 3.5 solves the problem).
Highly recommended for any Alpha user, if you don´t have the cash for the Sony 70-200 SSM f/2.8.
