IQ
negative:Poor in low light
Heavy, although handheld photographs can be taken using it for hours is inconvenient
comment:Having used for a month now I can say it is light hungry. But in good light conditions with aperture dropped down to f8-10 and a shutter speed of 1/1200 sec and ISO 100-400 (Sony A77V) produces crisp and sharp images. Overall the best value for money. I am impressed with it.
