positive:Sharp is the word for this lens!
negative:Gets pretty long, but doesnĀ“t bug me so much!
comment:The sharpness is great, even at f/2.8!
I think the lens sweet spot is at around f/5.6-8.
Fast and accurate AF on my A700, even in low light situations!

EDIT; After about a year of owning this lens, I can not be happier!
Performs excellent on my A700!
