|comment:||I like this lens a lot, it's fast sharp and nicely built.|
It can hunt in low light situations but no more or less than the beercan. Optically, at shared apertures, it is superior to the Sony and the old Tamron. The Beercan may be a tad bit sharper and color and contrast are a bit better on the Beercan, however, the differences are not enough to out weigh the benefits of the Tamron. It's a winner.
I recently purchased an a850, this lens needed a -10 micro focus adjustment, with that it is very vary sharp on the full frame sensor. Still highly recommend this lens.
With the micro adjustment I think I would increase the ranking for sharpness to 5.
