|positive:||This lens provides stunning results when used in conjunction with the A77. The IQ, and colour rendition is superb. Its small, and an ideal companion to the A77.|
|negative:||Its a lens that should be weather-sealed, and the plastic build pales in comparison to the Minolta that I've used in the past. |
Its screw driven AF system is dated.
|comment:||I really like this lens, and its definitely a must have for A77 owners. Its IQ and colour rendition are superb. Its sharper than both Sony's 30mm, and 100mm macro lenses. |
This lens has a screw driven AF which is slow, noisy, and needs to updated with something much faster (SSM).
