    It will work but the a900 will use only part of the sensor to record the image. In other words the a900 operates as a a700

    Not as good as the other Zeiss zooms. Why would you want to use it on the A900? You get only 11mp.

    Not much reason for that lens on the A900. Tamron 28-75 would be a better low cost, light alternative.

    Also, Jono has been digging his little Sony 24-105, I believe, so you may want to contact him.

    It is lens better on A700 and is a good all around lens. I have it on A700 as a standard zoom lens. If you have not had any dSLR then A700 with this lens is a good start.

    Better option than the CZ 16-80 is indeed the Sal 24-105. A little vignetting occurrences sometimes and not so sharp on the corners, but still a bargain for the A900.

    A example :



    Exif included.

    Very nice lens on the A700, sharp and pleasant contrast/colors. Not a premium, but better than average.
