positive:weight
sharpness
AF
aperture of 2.8!
negative:AF hunts sometimes
comment:this copy (2000478) works (almost) flawlessly on my A850
AF sometimes hunts (reducing sharpness to 1 point instead of several helps)
but that is something getting used to
main thing: a lens with 2.8 till 150 mm and 3.5 till 200 for just 880 gr and such a quality and such a price: a real bargain

very much a travelzoom with acceptable weight
