ownership:I own this lens
compared to:Minolta AF 100-300mm F4.5-5.6 APO D and 200mm F2.8 HS APO
price paid:700
positive:Both color and sharpness are very nice! Light weight! SSM!
negative:I just do not satisfy the bokeh and construction.
comment:I've owned this lens for a year, and it replaced my older Minolta AF 100-300mm F4.5-5.6 APO D. It outclasses the 100-300mm, and is quickly becoming one of my personal favourites.
I highly recommend this lens to anyone looking for a light portable zoom for the A-Mount.
