Summary: I'd been wanting to try this lens for a while as I have quite a decent range of A Mount lenses (around a dozen or so) One area I don't really have well covered is the telephoto end and at the 300mm mark. Though I've used a fair few of them On using the lens first off the build is very much like the recent Sony 18-135mm which is quite a good thing as I'm quite fond of that lens.
Summary: I have just started getting back into photography and upgraded to a Sony A77 at the start od the year. In terms of a cost effective solution this telephoto zoom lens is certainly value for money. Well constructed considering its price it doesn't feel cheep. I have used it for wildlife and some general photography and cant fault the quality of the images.
