Excerpt: Excellent value for money, can hunt for focus at times but pictures are sharp and over 85% are keepers. Took this on safari in South Africa and was extremely happy with the results. Cannot warrant paying 5 times or more for faster glass when I use it mostly outdoors.
Summary: On the A58 the pictures are clear and sharp. I've been using mine mainly for outdoor sports, something that was specifically said to be something this lens isn't suited to in professional reviews. In my experience, it's a great lens for that purpose.
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.
Summary: I am very pleased with this lens. I am not a serious photographer but have been taking pix for 50 years with all types of cameras and lenses. Using it on a Sony Alpha A77 it has been just fine.
Summary: Wow... I have kit lens 18-55mm, in my Alpha A77..Now I buy this lens and cant belive that is so big difference...! Im Speechless. Cant belive that is big different... Picture are cristal, great focusing, perfect quiet... Just love it....
