Good points:
using this lens on a SLT 77, balance is good.This lens is almost silient when in auto focus, build is solid,very sharp and quick to autofocus. A good all round lens to have a little heavy but expected from a quality lens. if you are a serious photographer I would recommend that you get this wonderful lens it changes the quality of photographs taken
Bad points:
auto/manaul focus switch can be a little fiddley at first,but manageable.

Jamie, Manchester Pro Photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The word Zeiss should be enough to tell any would be purchasers that this is a quality lens. It looks and feels great. Image quality and the SSM motor i feel will be hard to beat from other lenses of this category.
Bad points:
It does feel a little front heavy on my A99, but that is a small price to pay for such a high quality lens.
