S teller glass, but the focusing motor sounds like a Soviet era washing machine! Good grief! I am afraid to use it during a wedding service. Slow to focus.
Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
The Good: It's a Zeiss lens with autofocus for Sony. Us Alpha shooters take this for granted, but having autofocus with Zeiss optics is a rare treat. The lens has a very nice look, feel, and weight to it. It feels more like a Carl Zeiss product and less like a Sony.
I've been wanting to add this lens to my kit for quite some time, and finally made the jump. While an outstanding portrait lens, my primary use is for outdoor shots where the 135 f1.8 is too long, the 70-200G isn't quite fast enough, and the 55 is too short.
Fast, flexable, sharp short tele lens.
A bit heavy, but to be expected.
This lens has great color and beautiful Bokeh. It is a great lens for portraits. However I would say it needs an SSM motor. This lens is currently focused by the camera body, and that is both slow and noisy even on A900 bodies. It can't be used for any video because of the focus noise.
