Big fan

Excellent image quality, which is the most important to me - great sharpness. I haven't experienced any frustration with the autofocus, though I can see it isn't the quickest. Overall, I'm very pleased with this lens and for the price, would heartily recommend it for the fantastic telephoto range, compact size, and IQ.

Money better spent elsewhere

This lens is cheap and feels and performs like one too. When focus is achieved it is sharp and images are good.

I love this lens

This is a great lens for outdoors. I'm not a professional but the image quality is clearly superior to my 18-55 lens that came with my A35. This lens is very fast and a great tool for capturing wild life. I took this photo with my A35 using this lens
