positive:Useful focal length range. Lightweight, but good build quality. The lens is so sharp, even wide open. Nice color and contrast. Effective OSS. Great bokeh at 105mm F4.
negative:Distortion is heavy, LR or camera correction is needed.
Fully electronic operation. This lens is huge for my A6000.
comment:Great lens for everyday use. Excellent for both photographers and videographers.
