    Too expensive

I can't help but have mixed feelings about this lens. It's built superbly, is fast focusing and has great control of falloff, distortion and flare. At shorter focal lengths it also performs very well, but to get good results at 300mm, the lens needs stopping down.

    Excellent build quality, Fast focusing, Good control of distortion, CA and flare

    Disappointing resolution at 300mm, High price tag for such a lens

I love nature photography and this lens is a wonderful addition to my kit. The SSM technology is really great. I have the Sony a77ii with APS-C sensor, so I have a little longer reach when I am fully zoomed in to my subject.

    Poor in Low Light

I am using this with a amount to emount adaptor, so am relying on manual focus more than usual for me. The manual focus is excellent (not too loose) and the lens quality also excellent. Look for a refurb (I did). And note - there is a new version, marked with II.

Overall, I am very happy with this lens. It produces very nice photos and fairs quite well even in direct sunlight. Its range allows for some portrait photos with very nice bokeh. The SSM makes it great for recording videos and is quick on the autofocus.

    f4.5-5.6 is a little slow for certain situations

I use this with my Sony A850 for landscape, flowers and sometimes wildlife/birds photography. This lens rocks!!! Silent and fast Auto focus. Image quality is fantastic. I have used it with Tamron 1.6x TC, surprisingly it does AF in bright daylight, but the Image quality is bit soft.
