comment:I had bought this lens for my Sony A330, after using my old Minolta lenses on that body for about 6 months. I didn't know what to expect, but I was certainly pleased with the results on my 10MP body. I found the price really sharp and I was delighted with the results of the pictures I made with this lens.
