positive:build quality
negative:was waiting for a faster AF
comment:I have had this lens for a few days
It feel a lot better balanced on the A7 with its grip than the LA-EA4 + the tamron 70-200/2.8 or the minolta 70-210/4 beercan

up to know IQ seems impressive
AF is accurate but I was waiting for fater AF on A7. On A6000 it is much faster (my impression)

I need to use it more for a more precise feedback
