Good focal lenght
|comment:||I had this lense on my A100/200/300/700 days. I was always happy. It is a very suitable lens when you don't want to take too much equipment with you. It is certainly not a AL lens. You'll still need some addition to cover that need.|
It gives really sharp pictures on my A850. The color rendition is good. The A850 is not good if set to AWB. I strongly recommend to do it yourself. Bad WB = bad color rendition ;-)
Yes, i admidt, on wide angle it has some light vignetting. I would say, that nor more than my Sony 18-250 used to have.
The A850 Kit in Switzerland comes with a DxO 6.2 Elite Version (Full Release), which does effectively remove the vignetting.
Compared to my 28-75SAM, this is a good carry on lens.
Overall, for me as an amateur fotographer, this lens, give nice pictures, good enough to print on an 10x15cm format.
Pro's may go for the CZ.
