|comment:||This is my "beercan" on my A900, as beeing used to the 70-210 on APS-C cameras this gives more range on FF. I am very satisfied with this lens, and this is the 2nd I have. The other with very much lower number was not as sharp. Compared to the NIKON combination it is sharper all over specially wide open and at 300mm on my A900.|
These are more seldom these days and the SONY 70-300 is better in all aspects, but 3-4 times more expensive.
If you are on a budget this is a nice cheep lens.
