question

I have Sony Alpha 700 and Alpha 850 cameras. Will this lens work well on them?
Asked by: Leon S.
I am using this lens on a Sony A37. This has the same size sensor as the A700. They both accept alpha mount lenses therefore I can't see why it shouldn't work. I believe it is a very good value for money lens.
