positive:I love this lens for indoor rodeo. Bad lighting, dirt, dust and dark livestock makes shooting a challange. However I can get them coming out of the shoot. f2.8 and high ISO.

Sony A65, AF & MF smooth
negative:Sony A200, the AF & MF were sticky
comment:Has been quite the workhorse for Rodeo's and Weddings. Not quite ready to upgrade.
