negative:My copy micro adjusted to -6 with my A900
comment:I took this lens together almost with my A700 with the vision to upgrade to Full Frame some time.
This time arrived. Now I have a A900.
I was happy but not as now.
Because this lens saw the quality with the A900!!
Now the AF is more accurate and really faster!
Consider of course that (thanks to A900) micro adjust option my copy calibrated to -6 !!
Highly recommended!!
