it will pair nicely with the a57..its 'easy' to get macros with this lens as long as your up for it and from three feet to 7inches 80mm is a nice range.you can still shoot infinity or distance shots at 80macro also.being a shorter lens makes it easier to keep steady.it stops down to f36 i think and at night with flash on and stopped way down you can get some interesting macros also(the flash doesnt blow them out stopped way down...hope you like it,its a great little lens and for the price its a steal..brian

Thanks for tips, I ordered it and should have it tomorrow  I enjoyed doing some close-ups with my Sony Hx20v so looking forward to trying it out with this set up, not really the time of year for close-ups but hey!

here's a couple I did with the Hx20v (cropped)
