    "Fast AF...Love it...I received the Sony a6000 for Christmas, and I decided to try this lens since I heard prime lenses take better quality pictures than zoom....I wasn't sure I would use it much and that is turning out to be the case but it is still a great lens and I'm glad I bought it."

    "Very nice...Great buy...I bought this lens over the f2.8 and saved $1000 and I find it to be every bit as capable....The 100-400 II may give you more reach but it is a daylight/outdoors/safari lens only - this one will give you available light options which is more important to me ultimately."
