Re: Frustratingly difficult decision

In my basic testing, to focus from close to infinity and back, the Minolta is 40% faster (1.5s vs. 2.4s) which is significant.

Does anyone know if this lens would focus faster on an A77? I have seen some posts where people report their lenses focusing faster on the A77 than on other cameras. I need to buy one of the lenses in this category in the next 2 weeks, was leaning towards the Sony for IQ and in camera compensation, but if the focus speed is really that much slower it may be a deal breaker.

Any insight is appreciated, thanks!
