Best 500mm F4 lens in the market !!
SAL500F40G 24/11/2013 by KevinN (USA)
I got a chance to compare my Sony SAL500F40G lens with Canon and Nikon 500mm F4 lenses when out shooting the birds with my friends, my impression is: this lens can give you tack sharp images even at widest open F/4, the Canon and the Nikon in my opinion are usable only from F/5.6, sure you can go down to F4 in these lens, but it's soft (sorry I'm a pixel peeper). Color is typical Minolta G magical color with beautiful bokeh! I haven't used it with TC but its focus is fast on my A900, I also tried it with cropped alpha to shoot the moon at 800mm.
best lens from Sony

I have used this lens for about a month .I am still testing it.This is a very unique lens .The best image is at full open aperture . The image quality starts to drop at f8.The image still looks great even with a 2X converter lens at full open aperture at F8 at 50% crop .The image gets a little sharper at f10.The more I use this lens the more I like it.
