This lens is old enough for a bar mitzvah. It's held up well despite a Version II coming out. It weighs a ton and curiously does not give me a 1.5X crop on my a77 II. I was hoping for it to be the 36-105mm gap between the Sony 16 50mm f/2.8 and the Minolta APO 80-200mm f/2.8 lenses. Oh well. It still delivers incredible photographs and works really well for video with its SSM. Just prepare yourself to have tired arms at the end of the day.

Its a fabulous lens, well worth troubling with the heft!
