I took that lens and my A900 to Hong Kong and Schenzhen a couple of years ago... great performer but the CA started to bug me in this shot (around white areas)

This was the view from my four-star hotel.

Good to hear from you (and the others too) about this lens. Yep I remember the CA's indeed, yet I think I can work around those (and did when I had it before).

Looks like the overall view is positive of the lens. Be neat to see Sony re-introduce it with an APO element and SAM SSM motor :). A budget wide kit lens for full frame shooters with a better than average performance.


p.s. Lets finally see about getting together to shoot or chat soon as I get my A850, deal?

You really are funny Carl.  I remember when you used to have a sig of "currently writing for" your own web site.  Now you are the editor for your own web site.  Congratulations on the promotion.
