Perect Weight
Beautiful Colors
Amazing Portrait or Macro Photography lens

comment:This is my first Macro lens. After using it for about a week, I love it and don't want to take it off my camera (A700). I get such great results. This lens has a permanent spot in my camera bag now.

I've had this lens for about 6 days now (before writing this review). I walked around the yard looking for as much small things to photograph as I can find. I thought I may need a tripod, but all of the pictures were beautiful (and sharp).

Simply put: I would recommend this to a friend with an Alpha.
