reviewswhat are people saying

"This is perfect for group photos when you don't want to purposely exclude anyone. Also for the interior of buildings and for those horizon shots. A must for your collection. Clear as a bell."

"But the SAL-1118 performed amazingly giving me wide extremely sharp fully defined depth of field photographs. I can't say enough good words about this lens."

bhphotovideo.com

"The only drawback is the relatively slow 4.5 - 5.6 maximum aperture, though with the A700 DSLR body, this isn't much of a handicap, since the camera ISO range is up to 6400. All-in-all, a lot of lens for the money."
