Basketball w/ Sony A99ii and Tamron 85/1.8 USD
8

I'm posting some shots after trying the Tammy 85/1.8 USD because I had asked that someone who has the lens would share an experience. Obviously I decided to give it a shot myself. It's really the only available option for a non screw drive 85mm with Sony A mount (other than the discontinued Sigma 85/1.4 HSM). Note that this lens offers VC (stabilization) on Canon and Nikon mounts.

I was pleased with the lens on this first outing. It's sharper than my Canon 85/1.8. Of course it's also considerably more expensive. Focus speed is a little speedier than the Canon also, although it seems pretty close.

Questions?
