    Hi guys,

    Is anyone using this lens with the A99 or with the LA-EA4? I'd like to know how it performs in terms of AF speed and optically (specially wide open). I don't care about ultra sharpness but I do care about extreme CA and haze.

    i've used it with Pentax k5 (with 16mp sony sensor).... At wide open is very soft, good for portraits, sharpness increase at f4....
    It have terrible purple fringing, and not only at wide open.... It has good metal contruction, but it's very heavy.... I have payed it 400€ used with box and original bag. I sold it when i sold all my pentax gear for sony mirrorless... I don't know with sony but with pentax AF was very very very slow and not accurate... Terrible mechanism to switch manual/Auto focus
    If you want to see photos, ask me...
