comment:When images are in focus it's great which is anytime a pic is taken in good light. when shooting in low light indoors it does struggle at times. This is one of my favorite lenses and it is on my camera 90% of the time. I thought about getting the SONY 70-200 but i am so happy with this lens i don't even look anymore.
