|comment:||I was looking for a replacement for my sony 75-300 (which i bought as kit with the A200), and i found this lens on the internet in very good condition. It a very well build lens, it's all metal. But the build comes with price of a heavy weight.|
This lens is really sharp, the sharpness is equal to the sony 70-300G and the sigma 70-200 F2.8. I Gave it 4.5 for sharpness because at 300 wide open it can be a little soft.
One of the down sides of this lens is the Tripod mount, because it's non-removable. When you shoot for the hand, the tripod mount makes the lens difficult to handle.
I sold this lens because of the weight (and i found a cheap sigma 70-200)
