Sorry I dont spend much time here but I need too! Anyway used a gud old Tamron 70-210 LD. Yes U are right about the light but that Ferrari F1 was very fast considering it was a 2003 model. But the best news I ever had in a long time is that I got mt A700 back from Laredo and to my surprise they replaced AF driving unit, Shutter unit and the aperture unit along with a screen and thank U very much Sony! for free. I even got a email from Kathie from the national Sony service ctr seems like its Christmas already here for me. Thank U Kathie U made my day! Sony U rock!!!!. Keep up the gud service work.
