Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The image it produces is just amazing. Still learning how to get the best out of it, but it works so well with the Sony A900 body. It's a quality piece of kit, even if it is a treat item for me.
Bad points:
It's heavy! must be some serious lumps of glass in it.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have not had a chance to check this lense out for landscape work ( which is why i bought it.), however the quality of this lense is second to none. Field of view is brilliant on a full frame A900. If you have the budget don't hesitate to buy.
Bad points:
When changing lenses you may find it difficult to distinguish from the CZ 24-70, they are so simillar.
Not really a bad point, both lenses are pretty cool looking. lol
