John, Henley on Thames late developing photographer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is a substantial piece of kit with excellent image quality. Still learning how to use it on my alpha 700. Probably slightly behind my Zeiss 24 - 70 on image quality but I am sure that with a tripod it will perform well.
Bad points:
It is heavy. Plus a bit concerned about rain getting into the lens as it is not sealed (apparently).

Polly, London

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The lens is clear and crisp - the build to value ratio is high. I haven't used a zoom lens that is this simple to use and focus.
Bad points:
Weight - I only have little hands!

j.s.com, Germany Professional user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very accurate and brightly lens (F 2.8) for optimal picture quality in the whole range of 70 until 200 mm. In my opinion this is the superior 70-200 lens for the Sony Alpha system and much better than lenses with same F-factor of other manufacturers. Although it is much more expensive than lenses from other manufacturer, I would always buy this lens again. Very satisfying.
Bad points:
The price (although it is worth) and perhaps the weight of the lens, but lenses with this F-factor are always much heavier than ones with worse F-factors.
