Michael, Stoke On Trent

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Super build quality and coupled with the A99 a dream team :-)

Very nice to have the fast F2.8 and produces some very nice bokeh!

Autofocus is fast and near silent with the SSM
Bad points:
The rubber grips are dirt magnets! :-)

Purchaser Not enough time!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very heavy, not sure about image quality some times its great and sometimes not, need to spend more time understanding its nuances, I expect it to be brilliant most reviews say so just hope I have a great copy. Need to work with it more, perhaps its the shallow DoF, that I need to understand better, looking forward to some sunshine and small apertures next month to get the best out of it. Feels brilliant, but now have wrist ache!
Bad points:
Heavy, not forgiving, needs more time!

Having used the 70-300G SSM before this I miss the extra 100mm every now and then but that's what legs are for! In every other area the lens is outstanding.
