Please try to guide me and help me make an informed dissision - would like to hear from owners of these lenses as well.....

Thanks a lot.

  1. Yes, very.
  2. Yes it is soft on the long end, wide open and it has a very small aperture at 6.3

btw, the 270mm VC is not a Sony mount lens. The only option there is the 18-250mm.
