ownership:I own this lens
compared to:
price paid:57 (used)
positive:Fast lens 2.8~3.5
Sharp. Built well

negative:Lens creep
AF on current Sonys works but no fluid
comment:Got this off eBay recently and to my surprise it works very well with my Sony alpha 65. Serial number 10160xx

AF can be a little touchy if the subject is moving but perhaps this might be from the camera sensing moving- need more testing.

The lens is sturdy which means it is heavy when compared to a modern day lens. It's actually built with metal!

I'm enjoying this lens and suggest other try them out. I've now got the means to get indoor sports shots and/or football in the evening. Happy camper.
