Fast focus, clear center quality, horrible edges.

SAL2470Z2 21/08/2018 by Kurzweil Photography (USA)

The autofocus on the lens is extremely fast, accurate, and quiet. Build quality is exceptional, the lens feels solid but is also very heavy because of it. If you usually crop your images in postproduction then you don't need to worry about this, but I found that there was a significant amount of Vignetting at f2.8 in bright sunlight. For a lens that is over $2,000, I'm not sure I would recommend it.

SSM a dud

SAL2470Z2 09/12/2016 by morbid (USA) Verified Purchaser Verified

SSM motor broke within 16 months of purchase after I changed out battery. The repair shop refused to fix it and said the motor should have lasted 10 years. Frustrating that the lense won't allow manual focus when the motor broke because the lense won't set the f-stop.

best lens I've ever used

SAL2470Z2 03/07/2015 by goldsnapper (United Kingdom) Verified Purchaser Verified

A perfect companion to the Alpha99, a weighty piece of kit but that's the trade off for the quality. This is now my standard lens.
