positive:Build Quality
negative:Lens hood
comment:A fun lens to use. On the A700 the distortion level doesn't feel like a fisheye lens. On the A900, it is a very fun lens to use. The build quality is good and the internal filters can be useful. The leather lens hood is annoying and tend to fall off while removing\putting the lens in your bag.
