comment:After reading that the lens with serial number lower than 2x will not work on digital camera I already startet looking for an alternativ - because mine has SN 1000068.
But it works also on Sony Alpha 100 - once you put it onto the camera with a bit pressure, so that the contact of camera and lens come together.

It is a great lens on both cameras. The pictures I took are sharp, good color and I am really satisfied.
This is my favorite lens and I am happy that it also worked digital.
