Simple as that.The Sony A550 s resolution helps,but I
would not even compare it to the Konica Minolta 75-300 F4.5-5.6 D!
Its sharpness is worlds apart especially at the 200mm!
Its all plastic (the mount too) but it s well built.
Also its size is almost the same as a Sony 18-55 SAM!
Anyway,having paid just 85€ for a second hand on eBay,
I wasnt expecting much,but that was obviously a mistake!
PS.I reserve Sharpness 5 rating for the perfect lens!
This Tamron is good enough but surely not perfect...
