positive:- Very solidly built
- Excellent colour
- AF plenty fast enough
- Push-pull zoom very fast - suits me as I do action photography
- Sharp
negative:- Heavy, but that's what u get for solidity & fast aperture
- zoom lock would be nice. I'll make one.
comment:For info, I've just risked $30 on buying #1002218. Very nice order, no marks. Was told I was wasting my cash as it was too early to work on digital, but now arrived & works fine on my A550. Fast AF, all functions work as expected. Lucky boy.

Will paste review on functionality when I've given it a good work-out.

Update : Now taken several hundred pix in anger. Well pleased. Much
better than expected in operation & image quality. I use a Tamron 28-200 as my walk-around lens, but this one will always be with me on
fast-action sports shoots & anything low-light. Recommended.
