compared to:I don't know of any lens to compare it to.
price paid:800
positive:This lens is great on an apc body but also works on the A7r but the 1.5 multiplier comes into play.f
negative:The lens is heavy and will change to the 200 mm value by the force of gravity.
comment:The weight of the lens causes the zoom function extend to the maximum i.e. 200 mm. A fix is an elastic band to add more friction to prevent the lens from changing your chosen focal length.
