Summary: this is a replacement for a Lens same size that doesn't work any more. I love it, it was so hard to find, no one around here carried that Lens because it comes standard on most cameras, so I was glad I was able to find it here.
Summary: Item was promptly shipped, and arrived in good shape. I was happy to find it, since the camera has been discontinued, the lens is hard to find, and mine was broken, so I am thrilled to have my lens back.
Summary: I used this lens with a Sony A77 and the result I produce are excellent. As a professional ringside boxing photographer shots I used on this lens had showed up in magazines and boxing promotion websites such as TopRank.com
