I realy like this lens,
It is fast (F2) and produces nice sharp images from f2 and shines from f2.8 and up on mine A580.
The autofocus did suprise me, i tought it would be slower but it is realy fast. Also it has internal focus, fulltime manual focus override and and a internal focus motor (a plus as i like to use contrast af over Phase detect af)
I like the fact that it has a 55mm filter thread, just like many sony/ minolta lensen.
Maby it could use a focus limiter swich because it can hunt a bit in low light but i don't mind.
I gave it a 4 for build quality because it feels a bit cheap after holding the Sigma 70.
