  • Subject must be 2+ meters away
  • It's absurdly heavy
  • Worse zoom creep ever
  • Hazing and veiling and not sharp wide open
  • Backfocus problems because AF focuses wide open. Stopping down shifts focus because previous problems.
  • Glare
  • Tam 17-50 2.8 much sharper
  • Sony 55-200 sharper
  • Min 28-105 xi sharper

The problem is that wide open it suffers from veiling and hazing and softness, screwing up the AF system.

My choice of lenses is now the Tamron 17-50 f2.8 + the new Sony 55-300. (I don't have the latter, have the 55-200 instead).
