ownership:I own this lens
compared to:sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 1:2 macro zoom
minolta 100-300mm apo
price paid:105
positive:excellent light transmission, far better than average sharpness. vg but not exc contrast and color - bargain for the money, although i see fewer of these for sale more recently.
negative:i'm not a fan of the push-pull zoom.
comment:i've had 2 of these and they both work perfectly on my slt-a65.

i suspect this is because of the chip change others in this thread have reported on that sony implemented on later cameras.

i have other lenses and teleconverters that did not work on my a33 that do work on the a65.
