    Cons: Extreme corners at 2.8 vignette and distort, but if you use this on full frame you'll barely notice. Also it is heavy and large, which I guess is a necessary downside with a lens of this quality.

    Pros: Build quality, focusing, image quality. The colours and contrast just "pop" and the lens is fantastically sharp all over the range.

    Summary: Love it!

    Cons: Expensive Heavy and bulky Calls attention everywhere...not good for passing unadverted

    Pros: Well Built AF great on A700! Sharp

    Summary: From now on all my lenses will be CZ! They feel like the old MD Rokkors I have from my Minolta...really well made and build to last
