|comment:||Better and faster AF than MK 1 on same A99 camera.|
As fast and accurate as my favourite Nikon lens for BIF but a bit heavier. It is let down by the SLT camera which cannot continuously respond to action shots like the Nikon combination can. Need an APS-C non SLT camera body to get more length but in the meantime cropping will be just as good.
Will compare it to the Tamron 150-600mm when I get it.
