comment:Love this lens, great Macro but I bought it for portraits. It hunts a little now and then on my A200 and is noisy. But I can put up with it because of the quality pictures it take. I think this lens is past what my a200 can handle. Colors don't seem to be a nice as my minolta lenses but a little PP fixes that.
