    Cons: Lack of weatherproofing, not the smoothest bokeh heavy (awkward balance if you're using anything below the a700/a77 range

    Pros: Sharp! Quick focus, SSM drive, contrast & color rendition

    Summary: Pretty close to "prime" sharp. Definitely a step up from my previous 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom. Worth saving up and spending the money on good glass!

    Cons: Not internal focus Heavy Expensive (but worth every penny!)

    Pros: Fast focus - SSM Extremely sharp Great color and contrast / micro contrast

    Summary: This is an easy lens to like in that it is very versatile with all the attributes you expect from a top flight lens. This lens is quick to focus and very accurate at it. It has very nice color with superb contrast. It matches up very well with the Sony 70-200mm f2.8 G SSM. I highly recommend this lens.

    Cons: very slight lens flare when the sun is in a shot, not weather sealed (although it will withstand quite alot of rain), quite heavy, expensive!!

    Pros: extremely sharp, nice bokeh on all but the trickiest backgrounds, great colours, feels wonderful to use, fastest AF i have ever experienced in any lens mount

    Summary: the best lens i own by quite some margin, i am happy to pay such a high price for this lens because i believe it to be the best everyday lens someone can buy!
